It's exactly what i'm doing right now - each article may have
many pictures, many authors, belong to many categories(sections),
can be translated in some languages, etc. :)
Sorry, i havent much time to explain your example, just paste mine
here.. Perhaps you'll got the idea!

CREATE TABLE articles (
  id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  title_lv varchar(255) ,
  title_ru varchar(255) ,
  title_en varchar(255) ,
  refs_lv tinytext ,
  refs_ru tinytext ,
  refs_en tinytext ,
  intro_lv text ,
  intro_ru text ,
  intro_en text ,
  cite_lv text ,
  cite_ru text ,
  cite_en text ,
  text_lv longtext ,
  text_ru longtext ,
  text_en tinytext ,
  author_desc_lv text ,
  author_desc_ru text ,
  author_desc_en text ,
  phone tinytext ,
  fax tinytext ,
  email tinytext ,
  web tinytext ,
  datetime datetime NOT NULL DEFAULT '0000-00-00 00:00:00' ,
  active int(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1' ,
  counter int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,

CREATE TABLE articles_images (
  id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  article int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,
  file varchar(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT '' ,
  text_lv tinytext ,
  text_ru tinytext ,
  text_en tinytext ,
  url tinytext ,
  UNIQUE file (file)

so, the data about images contained in this second table,
which is linked to the main table "articles" by the article id.

then i join these tables like this:

  articles, articles_images
  articles_images.article = articles.id
