“Don't you wish there was a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked 'Brightness,' but it doesn't work.” - Gallagher

Simple Random Picture

Using a simple PHP script you can have a random web picture on a page. The one on this site (at the top of this page) is a little more complicated than this one but this one is simple and works just fine.


Download the demo from here, extract it to your PHP5 (or probably PHP4) enabled website, add pictures with a .jpg extension to the ./Images folder, then go to the index.php site.

You can checkout the PHP demo page here. Keep refreshing the page and a new random picture will be displayed.
