If you’ve ever tried designing a website or doing the layout for a magazine, then you already know how tedious the entire process can be. It’s all well and good if you already have all the elements you need when you start working on the project. Chances are, you won’t, though, and that’s why you need placeholders.
You can just fire up your basic image editor to create placeholders in the size that you need–or you could head on over to Placekitten instead. It’s a free service that offers adorable pictures of kittens that you can use as placeholders. The site can generate any image size that you need. All you have to do is add the dimensions after the URL (width followed by height), and your kitten is good to go.
For example, for a 300×400 image, just type: http://placekitten.com/300/400. Pretty neat, huh?
