Support for responsive CSS background images (and rich text images)

On the page webflow produced to promote background images, there is this:

* Dynamic and static inline images. Support for background images and images in rich text elements is coming soon.

Based on this I assume this feature is 'planned' but I'm adding here as a formal reminder/request!


Few more people requesting on the original announcement post too:

    this is important – because benchmarks show here a really important problem: background images are important for todays websites and these REALLY need the smart compression handling.

    Since Google now places so much emphasis on page load this is an essential feature. Also it’s been promised for over two years.

    I desperately need this for my client sites. Can someone from Webflow give is an ETA? Google is using performance ranking now and having 4mb background images uploaded by client who don’t know how to crop is not acceptable. 

    Webflow rocks but this is one major feature missing since we can’t crop images.

    When will this feature will be available? This is definitely required for a Business account with multiple editors.

    Please develop this soon.

    Eghad. This would allow a much faster mobile experience for us (as display:none doesn't do anything on mobile; to actually prevent images from downloading on mobile, you need to use CSS background images).

    But then we kill desktop & tablet performance because background images aren't responsive.

    Stuck between a rock & a hard place, Webflow.

    Can we please merge this other request into this one?

    Should be 168 votes, not 101.
