Maximum number of images is 25.

Optional parameters:

If this param is used, the images are selected with a drop-down list containing the image titles.

delimiter - To use a character other than a comma (default) to separate the image titles in the imagetitles param.

wintext - To override the default text displayed when the user solves the puzzle.

The gray control bar contains the "Image/Puzzle" button. It can also contain (depending on the number of images and number and length of image titles) a drop-down list of image titles, a "Next Puzzle" button or a text label of the image title.
If there are no image titles and there is only one image, no image selection controls or titles will be displayed.
If there are no image titles and there is more than one image, the "Next Puzzle" button will be displayed.
If there is one image title and one image, the image title will appear as text (if it will fit.)
If there are multiple images and multiple image titles, the drop-down list containing the image titles will be displayed.
If the length of an image title makes the drop-down list control too wide to fit, the "Next Puzzle" button will be displayed instead.
