What does not work about it? What error message is given?

One thing I notice is that in the code you show, if that is the entire code, then you are attempting to define a function inside a script. You need to convert the first part to a function. For example,

function testloop
  n = 10;
  for p = 1 : n
function [] = lal(p)


What happened when you tried?

 d = dir('.');
 n = length(d)-2;
 for imageNumber = 1:n

It works now..

Problem get solved..

Then officially mark it as solved. Looks just like what Walter said except that the function name is different.
