React component for lazy loading Graph CMS Images in an optimal way that is performance efficient. On initial page load, images are downloaded with low resolution and blur filter from graph cms. Once the image element is in active viewport, the blurred image is replaced with original HD image and blur effect is removed.


This is a work in progress, not ready for production yet. Your feedback would be appreciated, custom features can also be requested.


Currently, works only for image urls from graph media cms. Support for other image sources will be added as enhanced feature later on.


npm i @afiniti/image-lazy-load


  • Performance efficient, reduces initial load time by loading low resolution blur images on page load
  • Optimal sized images generated automatically for different devices and screen sizes.
  • Preview images whilst loading in form of blurred thumbnails
  • Lazy loading enabling original HD images to download only when they are in the current viewport

Example Usage

The package can be integrated inside a react component as follows:

import React from 'react';
import Picture from '@afiniti/image-lazy-load';
import '@afiniti/image-lazy-load/lib/main.css';

const Gallery = ({ data }) => {
  return (
    <div className={galleryWrapper}>
      {data.map(item => (

export default Gallery;

Css and Styling

A classname can be passed to the Picture component that is attached to the wrapper element.

  • No height passed in className prop object: By default padding-bottom: 56.25% set on wrapper div.

  • Set custom height using className prop object: Pass padding-bottom: 0% !important in addition to the height in order to overwrite the default styles.


  • The default styles need to be imported in addition to the component import as can be seen in above example.
  • Feel free to style the image elements by overwriting the default css.
