Both websites and mobile projects often benefit from demoing content. But instead of spending your time slavishly copywriting, why not incorporate Lorem Ipsum as a method to generate filler text? Over the years many websites have popped up to offer variations on this filler content. Even static images can be embedded on-the-fly with these webapps.

I’ve scoured the Internet putting together a collection of 40 intriguing solutions for content generation. There are plenty of text-based solutions along with some image placeholders as well. Most people end up sticking with 2-3 they like the most. But it never hurts to keep a variety of resources in your designer toolbox.
