  <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
    <asp:Repeater ID="repAnnouncements" runat="server">
            <td style="padding-right:15px; padding-top:1px;">
                <asp:HyperLink ID="hypImageEditLink" runat="server">
                    <asp:Image ID="imgLink" runat="server" Width="150px" Height="110px" ImageUrl='<%#Eval("Images")%>'/>
                <br/><br />
                <asp:HyperLink ID="hypTextEditLink" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("Title")%>' CssClass="TitleStyle"/>

If you just want to update using the ASP.NET AJAX UpdatePanel, then just add a Timer Control
