// Note: ee.ImageCollection.toList may take a lot of time and memory to run,
// since it must generate all of the results in order to gather them into a
// list. Large collections and/or complex computations can produce memory
// limitation errors.

// A Landsat 8 TOA image collection (1 year of images at a specific point).
var col = ee.ImageCollection('LANDSAT/LC08/C02/T1_TOA')
  .filterBounds(ee.Geometry.Point(-90.70, 34.71))
  .filterDate('2020-01-01', '2021-01-01');
print('Image collection', col);

// Get the first 3 images as a list of images.
var imgListFirst3 = col.toList(3);
print('First 3 images', imgListFirst3);

// Get the second 3 images as a list of images (use the offset parameter).
var imgListSecond3 = col.toList(3, 3);
print('Second 3 images', imgListSecond3);
