Default Image for K2 Items was created by David Lohan
I have been researching this issue and I found some post from a few years ago. Is there anyway to create a pool of default images for items which have no images in them?

I think it's easier to create this logic in your template overrides. In pseudo coding:

"If K2 item image doesn't exist, fetch a random image from folder X".

If you use & love K2, please take a moment to add your review and rate it
at the Joomla Extensions Directory: extensions.joomla.org/extension/k2/

Fotis,

Sincerest thanks for your assistance. I'm not a coder unfortunately. Would you have any idea where I might find some instructions, or an example, to achieve this goal?

How to di it in j.3 and K2 2.6?

I'd like to have a deafult imgae in each category (deafult image for items/articles in category) for ex. in category photo ->photo.jpg, for movie -> movie.jpg etc.

Any ideas?
If it's inpossible to do, one deafult image for whole items (articles) will be also goood solution.

You can use this for a staring point
<?php if($this->item->params->get('catItemImage'): ?>
	  <!-- Item Image -->
	  <div class="catItemImageBlock">
		  <span class="catItemImage">
		    <a href="<?php echo $this->item->link; ?>" title="<?php if(!empty($this->item->image_caption)) echo K2HelperUtilities::cleanHtml($this->item->image_caption); else echo K2HelperUtilities::cleanHtml($this->item->title); ?>">
		    	<?php if(!empty($this->item->image)): ?>
		    	<img src="<?php echo $this->item->image; ?>" alt="<?php if(!empty($this->item->image_caption)) echo K2HelperUtilities::cleanHtml($this->item->image_caption); else echo K2HelperUtilities::cleanHtml($this->item->title); ?>" style="width:<?php echo $this->item->imageWidth; ?>px; height:auto;" />
		    	<?php else: ?>
		    	INSERT YOUR PLACEHOLDER HERE
		    	<?php endif; ?>
		    </a>
		  </span>
		  <div class="clr"></div>
	  </div>
	  <?php endif; ?>

This is for the category_item.php file. The same logic applies to item.php as well.
I suggest you use overrides. Read this tutorial on template overrides before modifying any code: getk2.org/documentation/tutorials/174-templating-with-k2-and-the-concepts-of-sub-templates

Hello zaqaz,

Just open the category_item.php file which is located in the overrides you have created

Locate this block of code
<?php if($this->item->params->get('catItemImage'): ?>
         <!-- Item Image -->
         <div class="catItemImageBlock">
           <span class="catItemImage">
                 <a href="<?php echo $this->item->link; ?>" title="<?php if(!empty($this->item->image_caption)) echo K2HelperUtilities::cleanHtml($this->item->image_caption); else echo K2HelperUtilities::cleanHtml($this->item->title); ?>">
                        <?php if(!empty($this->item->image)): ?>
                     <img src="<?php echo $this->item->image; ?>" alt="<?php if(!empty($this->item->image_caption)) echo K2HelperUtilities::cleanHtml($this->item->image_caption); else echo K2HelperUtilities::cleanHtml($this->item->title); ?>" style="width:<?php echo $this->item->imageWidth; ?>px; height:auto;" />                    
                      <?php endif; ?>
               </a>
              </span>
             <div class="clr"></div>
     </div>
      <?php endif; ?>

and replace it with the one @krikor provided below.

Then right where it says INSERT YOUR PLACEHOLDER HERE just add the <img> element you want to load as your default image.
