Embed image in HTML code

You can embed images straight into HTML code without loading a separate image file. This is called data URL and is a base 64 encoded representation of the actual image file. You can more or less embed what ever data you like this way but the only implementations I have seen so far is with images. So why do this? There are probably hundreds of examples where this can be useful, I have used it for:

  • For taglines on services like JSFiddle, where external hosting of files can be a mess. If I delete the file or my server is down my JSFiddle demos will be broken.
  • E-mail signatures, same thing here no dependence on external servers for serving images in my mail signature. Some e-mail clients out there doesn't display data URL's so be careful with this one.
  • Screenshots in documentation distributed with software. Since the file is loaded from the users local hard drive the bigger size (see below) isn't an issue for any image and I only have to distribute on HTML file with the complete documentation.

So why isn't every image put into HTML this way? The answer is simple, the size increases! For small images, usually part of the layout, can be loaded faster even though the size is increased. This is due to the lack of overhead from an additional http request to get the image file. Every time someone opens an HTML page over the internet the browser then open new http connections for each resource referenced in the HTML like images, css and javascript files. So by cutting down on the number of request the page can load faster.

Dataurl.net by Sveinbjorn Thordarson is a really good resource to check what files on your site that would be suitable for data url embeds.

Simple example of a base 64 encoded data url image, my tagline image:
