Is there a way to loop through all the images inside a container and get their location, the X and Y of each image?

I want to get the coordinates from a click of a button, the images are draggable, so once the button is clicked i want to see this info.

By way of example, you could add a <ol> and a button to your page:

<input type="button" id="printPositions" value="Print Image Positions" />
<ol id="positions"></ol>

Then use jquery to print out the positions of each image on the page. This would be X and Y coordinates relative to the document edges. You could also make it relative to a container's edges.
$(document).ready(function(){
	$("#printPositions").bind("click", function(){
		var listItem, liText;
		$("img").each(function(i){
			var imgPos = $(this).offset();
			listItem = document.createElement("li");
			liText = document.createTextNode("X=" + imgPos.left + " Y=" + imgPos.top);
			listItem.appendChild(liText);
			$("#positions").append(listItem);
		});
	});
});
</script>
