Best way to store and retrieve multiple images, custom field? (2 posts)

    I created a custom post type and some meta data boxes with custom fields. So far, so good. Now I need to store multiple images. I will be displaying them on a product pages as "Also recommended." I'd like to enter just the file name, such as, B1, B2, R1, R2, etc., and then display them in a post.

    I am using PHPurchase as my ecommerce plugin, but this plugin will not affect what I do with the images. What is the best way to do this?

    I found some information about explode. If I enter "B1, B2, R1, R2" in a text field and then explode it into individual entries I could feed it to my template file. Something like: <img src="/path/to/my/files + B1 + .jpg">

    I just need to figure out how to check for the images and then loop through all of them. Need an example.
