When I am trying to pull images off of PlaceIMG its not allowing to input numbers larger than a single number digit, just curious if anyone else was having this same issue?

A typical reference to PlaceIMG might look like this:
ā€ƒ http://placeimg.com/640/480/any

Single-digit dimensions would produce an image too small to easily see or be useful. Check that you are using the dimensions in the correct place and order in the URL.

If that's not your issue, please show the exact URL you are trying to reference.

Do you mean the Width (px) and Height (px) boxes on the URL builder? They work as expected for me.

Notice that when you select the box, the border becomes a bit bolder. Watch to see if the box loses focus (is no longer selected) when you type a digit. If so, select it again.

You could also try copying the value you want from another window (perhaps running notepad) and pasting it in the box.

If either/both of these work, there may be something odd about your keyboard or browser that is causing an unexpected focus change when you enter a digit.


When I copy and paste what you linked it works, however when I try to plug those same px's on PlaceIMG it only allows me to put single digit numbers making the images very small.
