Welcome to placehold.it
A quick and simple image placeholder service.

How does it work? Just put your image size after our URL and you'll get a placeholder. You can also use it in your code, like this:
<img src="http://placehold.it/350x150">
Have fun!

Image Formats

.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


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.

Note: Spaces become +


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.


width x height

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

Example: http://placehold.it/300
Note: Size must be the first option in the url
