How to use this tool?
Using the Dummy Image generator tool is straightforward. First, set the image properties like size, color, and so on.
Setting image size
Set the width of the dummy image in the “Width” textbox and height of the image in the “Height” textbox. Both the width and height are measured pixels (‘’px”).
Changing the background color
To change the background color of the dummy image click the “Background Color” box. This will open up a color picker tool where you can select the color you want. The color picker tool will also have options to enter the color code in HEX, RGB, and HSL forms.

To change the text color of the text in the dummy image click the “Text Color” box. This will open up a color picker tool which is similar to the one in the background color box.
Changing text font size
Set custom font size in the “Text Size” box. The value in the “Text Size” box will be used as the font size for the text inside the dummy image. Note that text sizes are pixel units.
Changing the text
By default, image size is displayed in the dummy image as text. For example, if you generate a dummy image with a width of 300px and a height of 250px. The text inside the image will be 300x250.
Use the “Text (optional)” box to change the text. It is recommended to use only a few words and also adjust the font size accordingly.
