I want to create a tab at CMS side that admin can upload as many as image file he wants to
Are there any tutorial I can follow?

How can I set up db?, relationship??

   static $db = array();

static $has_one = array();

static $has_many = array();

also this part

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

       $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.UploadImage", new ImageField('img', 'Image Upload'));   
return $fields;

You would need to setup a has many relationship. To add an undefined number of images you could try the Has many file manager ( not sure if that works with the latest version though. You could also take some ideas from this tutorial -

hi leafchild

I'm currently working on something that sounds similar, namely a gallery containing photographs (which themselves contain an Image file). I've added a bulk upload tab which is working other than the left hand menu not updating. Still work in progress so please only install on a test site in the first instance
