Single-Color Image Generator

Do you need a simple rectangular image filled with a single color? Surprisingly often I find myself looking for such a tool to create simple image files as backgrounds, placeholders or test images in my web development projects.

Of course a full-featured photo manipulation software gets the job done but it feels overkill for such a simple task and especially so on mobile devices. Therefore I created a small web app to make single-color images.

See the app at

For nerds that prefer command line, the following imagemagick command does the same:

$ convert -size 800x600 xc:#00FFFF image.png
