Unsplash's is basically the same, looks like, I just really wanted beachy photos!

Came up with an idea with co-workers the other day to build a custom lorem picsum similar to fillmurray.com/ but featuring someone else. Maybe someday I'll find the time!

 

My only issue with Picsum is that it pulls the same image in each place I am using it. I was hoping it would display a random one each time :(

fillmurray is great, never seen it before, makes me want to do the same! I think my favorite part of the site though is that they use the Crazy Nic Cage pic for the favicon!

Co-creator of picsum.photos here! 👋

You can actually have the image change by appending a cache-busting query string to the end:

<img src="https://picsum.photos/200/300?a" />
