Helpful web tool: Placehold.it

Have you ever been working on a design and need to insert a placeholder image to show where a graphic will go? The typical process is something like this: open photoshop, create a new image, enter the size you need, change the background color, add some text and then save it. Here’s a handy web-based tool to replace that process: http://placehold.it/ .

Mundane task, done in less time, equals a happy designer.

  1. Thanks for the link Edward. Yes, There are definitely a number of flavors of it out there. Most of them, Placehold.it is just a variation of Russell Heimlich’s Dummy Image. I just really liked how this site implemented it.
