Is there any website / method to generate a random list of 10 or whatever number of images and just show on screen those images? I would like to have this just when I am stuck writing a text, I look at the 5 or 10 random images and then try to find relationships between the images and parts of my problem. Sometimes new ideas arise. Any opinions / help?

Voting to move to if you are looking for an already established solution, though if you are looking to actually code this, maybe stackoverflow would be better. – MaQleod Apr 28 '11 at 20:23
What about ? – cYrus Apr 28 '11 at 21:06
yes, this seems to be a good idea although the images seem to be a bit biased (landscapes, people, etc) – flow Apr 30 '11 at 14:25

Just try Google Image search and type a random word (usually an adjective) that would generate random image sets (like "Large" or "Alternative"). Safe search highly recommended.

This is something that wouldn't be very hard to code in any number of languages. You just need a program which gathers a list of available images, assigns each a number from 1 to X, then generates y number of random numbers between 1 and X and displays the images that have been assigned to those numbers by the application. Fairly easy coding for .NET, Java, PHP, etc.
