I tried that link and it does not seem to work. I checked out the placehold.io site that "inspired" the kitten site and that will show you a placeholder image. While I can see kitten images in the attribution page, placing placekitten's sample code into a browser brought up only a blank placekitten page - no image at all. While the options below are not as simple, since that site does not appear to function correctly you could:
It's very simple to use. In your URL bar, type placekitten.com/X/Y, where X is the width of the image you want, and y is its height. A kitten image of exactly those dimensions will be provided to you.
We all know that setting border-radius: 50% on an image is an easy way to make it round, but that doesn't work so well if the image isn't perfectly square. Let's take a look at three different images from placekitten, one square, one portrait, and one landscape.
Thanks to Michael Jones for brightening an otherwise dull day for me. He pointed me to placekitten, a site that mimics placehold.it and inserts dummy images into HTML mockups for you. The difference being that placekitten does it with pictures of, yes, kittens.
ok, I'll be honest with you, placekitten was down and I needed an alternative.after long debate we agreed this is an acceptable time to be using puppies,but in the mean time, placekitten had come back up. 2b1af7f3a8
