Is the only way to serve high-resolution images to high-resolution devices, like Apple's Retina displays, is by serving an image twice the size as its container and then shrinking it down by using image attributes or css?

photo.jpg is 200px by 800px

<img src="photo.jpg" height="100" width="400" alt="High Resolution Image" />
<img src="photo.jpg" style="height:100px;width:400px" alt="High Resolution Image" />
