Image Selection for HTML Coding from SSI Script

Does anyone know how to make the img src called using SSI script?

[%GraphicsPath()%] obviously works but I want to use a constructed list to pull 4 semi-random images in for brand evaluation in a droppable freeform item.

You can just create a list where each item in the list is using the image tag as the text.  Then construct a randomized list from that and you can call upon the items from the randomized list to be shown where you want.

I had tried: <img src=""[% GraphicsPath() %][% ListValue(brandlist, 1) %]

Where the brandlist list had "brand1.png" as the value.

Or should I just use <img src="[% ListValue(brandlist, 1) %]"

Where brandlist are values like "graphics/brand1.png"...
Let's assume you create a parent list called 'Images' with 3 items in the list representing images for brands 1-3 as follows:
1 <img src="[%GraphicsPath()%]brand1.png" alt="" border="0">
2 <img src="[%GraphicsPath()%]brand2.png" alt="" border="0">
3 <img src="[%GraphicsPath()%]brand3.png" alt="" border="0">

Then you could create a constructed list where you want to randomize those images (call it 'RandImages') using the logic:

ADD (Images)

The you could call upon the first image in that list with [% ListLabel(RandImages, 1) %].  That will bring up the first image in your randomized list.  I think that should take you the direction you are looking for, but if not let me know and I can clarify.
