I found this and thought it would be really useful, especially for designers or people mocking up sites.

If you ever need a placeholder image, you don’t need to create one, you can just use this url with the size of placeholder image you want:

http://placehold.it/600x300

As well as the size, you can change the text, the colour of the background and text, and the format of the image.

http://placehold.it/600x300/ff0000/fff/&text=You%27re%20welcome
