Make Responsive Images in Blogger Post/Sidebar using CSS3

Have you a Blogger blog? If yes, are you using responsive images into your Blogger posts? If no, read this post to make any image from your Blogger post, sidebar or footer into responsive image. If you are using a responsive Blogger template, your images inside the Blogger posts would likely to have responsive image. If you are using Blogger default template or non-responsive template then you should also make your images responsive. We have seen many bloggers using default template which is not responsive having few images that are bigger than the post container width, and images overlapped its post container. That's why responsive images are also better for non-responsive templates too. Let you have a fixed width of your post container assuming 600px, and if you upload an image of 700px then this image will show from outside of your post container which is not a better user experience for your readers. Instead of it, you can make your images responsive inside your post container that will scale your 700px image into your 600px fixed post container.
