Loading images from a directory with PHP

This is how you can use PHP to display all of the images in a directory (folder) where the PHP page lives.

<?php

$files = glob("*.jpg");
$fileCount = count($files);

for ($i = ($fileCount-1); $i >= 0; $i--) {  
    echo '<img src="'.$files[$i].'" alt="" width="450px">';
}

?>

Note: this will only display images with the extension .jpg. You will have to modify it to display other image types (png, gif, etc.).
