Generative Placeholders

Use generative art as your image placeholders.

Visit the project page for instructions and more examples.

The project page showcases several styles plus their variations, and lets you also generate new previews — while receiving a very high PageSpeed score thanks to a few clever tricks. For example, the initial thumbnails, which are lazy-loaded, are static, and only created dynamically when you click the images.

And the image thumbnail used on social media is generated randomly as well.
