How can I make a pool of images just like a pool of facts and background colours?

I want to use the pool of images, to get a random image out of it, and set that image as a background instead of colours.Is it possible? Any help would be appreciated.

You can store your images in R.drawable. And then use int reference:

private int[] imagesId = {
   R.drawable.image1, 
   R.drawable.image2, 
   R.drawable.imageN 
};
