MCPacks out now!

MCPacks is now officially out and running, check it out now!

Extremely simple avatars

The examples shown below work with all avatar types.
For basic usage just provide a UUID or a username:
https://mc-heads.net/avatar/UUID
For size control, add the desired size in pixels after specifying the username:
https://mc-heads.net/avatar/UUID/100
For avatars without the helm element, add /nohelm to the end of any URL:
https://mc-heads.net/avatar/UUID/100/nohelm
And for a URL with a file extension, you can add a .png at the very end of any URL:
https://mc-heads.net/avatar/UUID/100/nohelm.png

Mojang API:

Caches the user profile for 1 minute, just enough to avoid rate limit.
Works with both UUIDs and usernames, note that username based requests serve slower.

About Caching

MCHeads caches skins for 6 hours
Images are also cached in your browser for 6 hours until a new request to MCHeads is made.

When you changed your skin you can try clearing your browser cache to see the change faster.
MCHeads deletes expired cache every 30 minutes.


About Usernames

We strongly advise you to use UUIDs instead of usernames! UUIDs never change while usernames do.
Looking up players by username has officially been deprecated by Mojang ever since UUIDs were introduced.

Malformed usernames are rejected.


About UUIDs

UUIDs may be any valid Mojang UUID in the blank or dashed format.
Malformed UUIDs are rejected, and all features on MCHeads support UUIDs


CORS

MCHeads supports Cross-Origin Resource Sharing, so you can make AJAX request from other sites!
