Images doesn`t get affected by the responsive design rules as they only affect page converting rows into columns to fit mobile devices.
If the resposive deign affected images that wouldn`t be a way to preserve the aspect ration of images and when makign them smaller the image will start looking unfit for its size.
All the best,
the Telerik team
