Generate Images

You can use templates to generate a new image with dynamic content like text, images and colors. Add, design and edit your templates in your Placid account.


Method URI
POST /api/rest/{template_uuid}

You can get your {template_uuid} here:


This request creates images from your templates. You can add your desired fields and changes into the fields object. By default all images will be created async, which means you have to define a webhook_success URL or poll the same request multiple times until the status is finished;

If you want to have your image without it being queued you have to set create_now to true. You will then get it as fast as possible as soon as your worker is free.
