Just edited administrator/component/com_content/models/forms/article.xml to add more Images fields. The control is very user-friendly.

Is there a way of doing it more right without changing core Joomla components?

  • @YellowWebMonkey The image type is just a dropdown with text, but just a second ago I found "Media" type which is exactly what is shown. Cool. Thank you.

I would suggest using Joomla custom fields instead. The media field should work: https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Adding_custom_fields/Media_Field
