You don't need to let an incompatibility between your browser and the PlaceIMG UI slow you down. Just start with the default URL and modify it by hand. For example, using the default of http://placeimg.com/640/480/any, if you need a size of 600 x 400, just copy that into your code and then edit it to be http://placeimg.com/600/400/any.
