Updating the Placeholder Images Bash Script

A while back, in an odds-and-ends post, I mentioned simple_placeholder_images, a BASH script that allows you to get (free) images of the size and sometimes type (depending on the service) that you need.

Since then, the services have changed somewhat, so I’ve updated the script to reflect that. It currently supports (in no particular order) lorempixel, Lorem Picsum, Placeimg, and Unsplash.

You can get the script on GitHub, GitLab, or my personal Git repository.

Example outputs:
