Dynamic Dummy Image Generator

Any size and color you want by tweaking the url!


Sometimes you just need a placeholder image right at your finger tips. Just enter the width + x + height at the end of this URL and off you go!

Example: http://dummyimage.com/640x480


What is this?
This is a simple tool for generating dummy/filler images on the fly at whatever size you want.
How do I use it?
Simply add the width, an 'x', and the height (example) of the image you want and my script will spit out a gray box to the size you want with the image dimensions in black Arial text centered in the middle of the box.
Can I use a dummy image url as an image source?
Yup, that was what it was designed for. Try this: <img src="http://dummyimage.com/325x123" alt="A Dummy Image">
How many images can I generate?
As many as you want until my server collapses. If you would like to run this script on your own server, here are the files and instructions for doing so.
Who are you?
I am Russell Heimlich and I like to design web pages, blog, and doodle around in JavaScript and PHP.
