OK, I am not an coder by by any stretch of the imagination - my website is all written using Dreamweaver - but what I would like to do is find a way of changing an image on my website every time the page is reloaded. If you take a quick look at my website HERE its the large picture on the lefthand side I want to change everytime someone visits the site. Any ideas how this could be achieved bearing in mind I can't hand-code at all.

Thanks!

i was just trying to help by pointing you to what you need :p
perhaps you can see if any of these works for you?

(look at the "Free PHP Photo Albums and Photo Galleries section")

Hi, Assuming that you just want to reload a different random image (from a selection) each time the page is refreshed, regardless of who the visitor is you could probably make do with a simple piece of javascript and some fiddling!

I used something similar to this on commerce website I used to have, it worked fine. If you need anything more complex you might need somthing that uses a gallery based on php or similar.

Javascript Random Image

I'm no techy either but this worked for me fine! Good luck.
