P-Hold

P-HOLD humbly calls itself "another placeholder service," yet the twist is in its simplicity: the URL you enter in your page where you need your placeholder image is how you tell the service what you need.

Set the image src attribute to p-hold.com/400/400 to render a non-ugly image at the given dimensions.

Set the image src attribute to p-hold.com/kitten/w/h to render an image of a kitten at the given dimensions.

Append a hex code, 'gray' or 'blur' to the end of the source URL for a colorized, grayscale or gaussian-blurred image.
