The Content-DPR response header is used to confirm the image device to pixel ratio in requests where the screen DPR client hint was used to select an image resource.

Header type Response header, Client hint
Forbidden header name no
CORS-safelisted response header no

If the DPR client hint is used to select an image the server must specify Content-DPR in the response. If the value in Content-DPR is different from the DPR value in the request (i.e. image DPR is not the same as screen DPR) then the client must use the Content-DPR for determining intrinsic image size and scaling the image.

If the Content-DPR header appears more than once in a message the last occurrence is used.



Content-DPR: <number>



The image device pixel ratio, calculated according to the following formula: Content-DPR = Selected image resource size / (Width / DPR)


See the DPR header example.
