Image Placeholder APIs

In a previous article I discovered fake images please which allowed you to put image placeholders on your webpage by using an image placeholder API. I had a number of comments about this post from other people sending links to other image placeholder APIs.

Here is a list of some more APIs.


A quick and simple service for getting pictures of kittens for use as placeholders in your designs or code. Just put your image size (width & height) after our URL and you'll get a placeholder.

To display this image just use the following URL

<img src="" alt="Place Kitten" />

Place Kitten

<img src="" alt="Place Kitten" />

Place Kitten



If your more of a dog person then you can use the API placedog, it works the same way just pass in the parameters to the image and it will display an image of dogs for your application.

<img src="" alt="Place Dog" />

Place Dog
