Display recently uploaded images

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am currently working with a web server that has a directory containing images that are uploaded chronologically from a webcam.  My end goal is to have a web page that displays the three most recent images uploaded.  I have attempted to do this with the following code:

$files = glob("imageDirectory/*.*");
for ($i=3; $i<count($files); $i++)
	$num = $files[$i];
	print $num."<br />";
	echo '<img height="450px" width="800px" src="'.$num.'" alt="random image" />'."<br /><br />";

Open in new window

However instead of displaying three recent images, it shows all of them.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
