Placeholder is a free image placeholder service for web designers and developers alike.

What is a placeholder?

A placeholder is something that marks or temporarily fills a place (often used attributively). It can take the shape of a text, image or even a video. Web and mobile designers often use this when they don’t have relevant design assets ready.

Placeholder images are usually light weight and complement the color scheme of the design they are placed in.

Placeholder is a schematic drawing or a very simple and obvious image used as a placeholder for an image that will be added later. The idea is that readers are likely to concentrate on the meaning of the page, rather than the purely visual appearance of it. Wikipedia has an official policy of using empty image placeholders on image-deficient articles (particularly those about real people), essentially accepting this argument.

What does generating an image on the fly mean?

In computer technology, “on the fly” describes activities that develop or occur dynamically rather than as the result of something that is statically predefined. For example, the content of a page that is sent to you from a Web site can be developed (and varied) “on the fly” based on dynamic factors such as the time of day, what pages the user has looked at previously, and specific user input.

In this case the dynamic factors are text on the image, colors of the text and background and size of the image. This kind of technique is quite helpful where you want to generate many images based on varying text.
