How to add multiple images to a single feature?

I'd like to add multiple images of single guidepost (eg. [1]). Many of the guideposts can't be covered by just one image. The problem is when it has signs from many directions. --*Martin* (talk) 20:25, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Ideally you should link a relevant category or a galery page, but the tag allows just a direct link to an image (not even its description page, which is quite unfortunate). The doc anyway says that page names (instead of direct URLs) inncluding the File: or Category: namespace or no prefix for the galery page, is now accepted (and in fact even preferable to links which are restrincting to a single server or a single HTTP or HTTPS protocol, allowing the use of external proxies or local caches in applications).
instead I think that linking to the Wikidate entry would offer the best options of exploration (encompassing also the wikipedias with a single entry for all languages, even if we keep just one wikipedia in a default local language). — Verdy_p (talk) 20:53, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
