We make themes from scratch and as yet we've not found a way of having multiple featured images in a collection template (collection.liquid).
Some stores have hundreds of unique collections and it is not practical to make a unique collection.liquid template for each and every one.
We want to be able to give the store owner the ability to upload multiple collection images and for these to be outputted in an area we define in the template. We can't use the HTML area.
Metafields seem to only be for products.... Any apps out there?
Metafields can be applied to collections (and pages, customer, etc). Take a look at the API docs for metafield for more info on that front.
Once the metafield contains a list (assumed to be a comma seperated value) you can loop over the paths in Liquid adding the extra images to the layout.
You don't need to use metafields either. With some clever content splitting you could also take image paths from the collection description itself.
