There’s nothing like threatening to go live with a bunch of Bill Murray pictures on a website to ‘encourage’ your clients to send you their content faster.

So here’s a few generators you can use on your mockups and websites.

P.S. You’ll notice the image generators allow you to embed a URL directly into an <img> tag. That means you don’t have to upload dummy pics to your clients site and mess up their media library. Cool huh?


Loripsum – The best generator I could find because it optionally includes lists, formatting, blockquotes and a bunch of other HTML

Pan Ipsum – Gives you the option to generate text with a lot of different word lists

Bacon Ipsum – If you want to make your client hungry


Lorempixel – The best image generator I’ve found. Allows you to embed directly with a size and a category e.g. <img src=”https://lorempixel.com/400/200/sports/” />. Also lets you specify greyscale or colour

Dummy Image – If you don’t want real images, this one generates a blank placeholder with the size written in the middle. Saves people working out what size image they need to send

Fill Murray – Who doesn’t love a website full of Bill?


UI Names – Every time you press space, it generates a new profile with name, image, gender, country, phone, birthday, email and password

Random Thing Generator – Very simple. Generates Names, Addresses and Business Names

Fake Name Generator – Extremely comprehensive profile generator all the way down to favourite colour and what car they drive

Random User – This one has an API for when you want to fill an app with profiles
