How to upload Placeholders in Magento 2

Making a reservation for a product image that is coming soon is a great idea if you haven’t finished the major one yet. The replaced image is called Placeholder. This means store owners will use a temporary image on the product list page until the offical product image is ready to appear.

You may need Magento 2 Placeholders in the following case:

  • The product image is not ready yet, but you still want to live the products to get better SEO results and trigger customers’ attention.
  • You want to check how things will look like on the frontend even when the full content is not ready.
  • There are some technical issues and during the time you find ways to fix them, you still want customers’ experience to not be interrupted by displaying Placeholders instead.

By default, the uploaded placeholder image is often the Magento logo, but you are also authorized to apply other images as you need, for instance, your brand logo. The placeholder image is displayed on the catalog page as the following:
