– Online image placeholder service

With this service, you set your dimensions more traditionally, rather than separating the widths and heights into segments. is a bit different in that, rather than using photos for placeholders, it instead uses more traditional solid color images, which might be more appealing to some designers.
  • Image Format ( .gif, .jpeg, .jpg, .png )

Adding an image file extension will render the image in the proper format. Image format is optional and the default is a gif. jpg and jpeg are the same. The image extension can go at the end of any option in the url.

  • Custom Text ( &text = Hello+World )

Custom text can be entered using a query string at the very end of the url. This is optional, default is the image dimensions (300×250). A-z (upper and lowercase), numbers, and most symbols will work just fine.

Spaces become +
  • Colors ( background color / text color )

Colors are represented as hex codes (#ffffff is white).

Colors always follow the dimensions
The first color is always the background color and the second color is the text color.
  • Size ( width x height )

Height is optional, if no height is specified the image will be a square.

Note: Size must be the first option in the url.
