Call with all options

$("ul.images").loremImages( 100, 200, { // images base size 100 x 200 pixels
    count:        20,        // load 20 images
    grey:         1,         // load grey / black & white images
    randomWidth:  100,       // width will be in 100-200 range
    randomHeight: 100,       // height will be in 200-300 range
    category:     'fashion', // get images from fashion category
    itemBuilder:  function( index, url, width, height ){ // custom HTML output for UL container
        // `this` is jQuery wrapped container element
        return '<li><img src="'+url+'" width="'+width+'" height="'+height+'" alt="Image '+(i+1)+'"></li>';
