Infinite number (almost ;-) of custom properties per object and the custom
properties of one object can be accessed by any other object of any card of
any stack, or of course the cards and stacks themselves. ;-)

In your example you could store all of your images in one custom property
set. You could cipher them. You could then access them from anywhere. By the
way, did anyone mention that custom properties are faster than globals in
memory?  ;-)
