I have a quick camara attached to my computer, which takes a picture every 30 seconds, and saves it to my server over the old picture. How do i get the image to be refresehed automatically so that the it changes on screen, without the user reloading the page ??

Thanks

You can refresh that page, or send the browser somewhere else by using the Meta tage below:

<head>  
<title>page's title</title>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content= "30; URL=file.html">
</head>

In the example the refresh is set for 30 seconds.  The file the browser will be sent to is "file.html".  Just use the current file's name to refresh itself.

This tag should be inside the head of the document (next to the title).

If, as you said, you don't want to refresh the page, you can have a time-delayed slide show of the same-named images every 30 seconds.
