This just added a whole new ux layer to one of our apps! Thanks for sharing! :fire:

Cool service! Use it in my apps too. It’s also useful for different kinds of cover images for cards or tiles. Like if we want to create some directories and subdirectories of our things.

hehe, yeah.

I started using the Multiavatar ones in one of my apps.
If users don’t set their own, they get a random one.
I used to give them the boring Generated Image column.
It’s amazing now how many users have suddenly decided to set their own avatar :rofl:

Exactly - love the subtle influence to upload a photo or make do with what we give you!
