Hi Francois,

IMHO IMAGE is for a single image, FILES is for multiple coming from
files, references, collections or folders. FILES is using IMAGE as well
for rendering a single image. Why should I use files, when it should be
possible by doing so with IMAGE standalone. That's TypoScript overhead.

I could not explain to my users that you need to use FILES for a single
image, while the IMAGE content object is around.

Even the FAL docs on the Wiki are referring to the IMAGE object [1].

And as shown, the second TypoScript part does what you expect. Only the
first one does not because the file path and names are in the media field.
