yes that's it. I played a bit around and came to the following DS.xml (see
below this text). There is a nice feature that I can set one Element not to
be wrapped and another Element not to be seen in the BE. I am not sure if I
did it too complicated (just let me know), but it works somehow.

But as a German perfectionist I still got two questions:
1.) Am I right, that I could change the upload-folder for this DS from
uploads/tx_templavoila/ to something like uploads/background_images - or is
there any problem in setting a special directory for that ?

2.) Still on the issue of reference vs. copy of an image.
In my case I will get maybe around 10 images used on 100plus pages. So at
the end I get all kinds of copies of the same image in my folder. 
Is there a way in Typo3 to avoid that the counter is added to the filename ?
I thought I read once about it, but I am not even sure if it was about
Typo3 or another CMS I am using a lot ...
