The following characters need to be encoded using the UTF-8 Hex version in order to be rendered properly.

Character UTF-8 Hex Equivalent
+ 0x2B
# 0x23
% 0x25
& 0x26

You'll run into problems trying to manually enter a dimension as text if the numbers use the UTf-8 Hex values above, like &text=400x250. Use a multiplication symbol, × instead (not an x character) to get around this, &text=400×250.

If you need to use other unicode characters, look up their UTF-8 Hex version at http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/search.htm

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a dummy image?

When you are designing a new site, often your text is ready before your images. With dummy images, you can place your content on a web page and use dummy images as placeholders until the actual images are available. That way, you don’t have to stop the design process. You can get dummy images in just about any size you need. 

Is the dummy image generator free to use?

Yes it is. You can create and download as many dummy images as you need. These images are made to increase the realism of your design, but make sure to swap them in for real images before you go live!

Will image placeholders slow down the loading speed of my website?

These images will replicate what you will have on your site when it goes live, so it’s a good way to test if they do reduce the loading speed of your web page
