When creating websites or apps, you often work with placeholder images in the beginning, which are replaced at a later time. This is used, for example, for the first prototypes so that you get a first impression of where text blocks and where images will appear. In the layout usually only monochrome areas are used. However, if you are already building a page (whether in HTML or already in a CMS), there are some tools that allow you to simply specify the URL to display images at this point. With additional information in the URL, you can then also specify the size of the image and possibly a photo category.

Here now two image databases, with which you can display different photos from various categories:

PlaceIMG.com

On the website of Placeimg you can generate a link from the image size and category, which then displays a random image from this selection. In addition, you can also narrow down the image selection in black and white or sepia style.

Lorem Picsum

The Lorem Ipsum for photos. Besides a large number of photos, this service also offers a blur effect, which you can give to a photo. The blur effect is good for background images, for example – or hero elements on which text is displayed.
