Is there a way to randomly show three images on a Detail Page from an upload with a max of six?

Shuffle is cool but it shows all the uploads.

Hi Terry, 

If you don't have too many uploads maybe you could just load them all and use a counter to only show the first three? 

  <?php // simple counter cutoff
    $fruits = ['apples','oranges','pears','peaches','kiwis','strawberries'];
    shuffle($fruits); // random order
    $count = 0;
    $max   = 3;
  <?php foreach ($fruits as $fruit): ?>
    <h1><?php echo $fruit; ?></h1>
    <?php if (++$count >= $max) { break; } ?>
  <?php endforeach ?>

Hope that helps!
