Graphic designers often (usually) design their print and web projects before the final text and images are ready. To help them mock up how the finished project will look, they use dummy placeholder text (often beginning with the Latin words "Lorem ipsum") and placeholder images.

There are easy to use online generators that will spit out lorem ipsum text for you, but coming up with place-holder images of the precise dimensions needed can be a surprisingly annoying pain in the ass.

Or, at least that was the case before placekitten.com. Placekitten is a free service that automatically serves up images of the exact size needed. The fact that each image happens to be of a so-adorable-I want-to-die kitten is just a bonus.
