To display images dynamically from a folder in PHP, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a PHP script file, for example, display_images.php.
  2. Open the script file and use the glob() function to retrieve all image filenames from the folder. The glob() function uses a pattern matching to get the file names. Here's an example for retrieving all jpg and png files:
1
2
$folder_path = 'path/to/folder';
$images = glob($folder_path . '/*.jpg') + glob($folder_path . '/*.png');


  1. Use a loop to iterate through each image in the array and display them using the img tag. Here's an example of how to display the images:
1
2
3
foreach ($images as $image) {
    echo "<img src='$image' alt='image'>";
}


  1. Save the file and run it through the PHP server to display the images dynamically.


Note: Make sure to provide the correct path to the image folder in the $folder_path variable.
