For simplicity sake, you should keep them separate. I don't believe there is a way to upload them through the UI because it limits it to JS files only. You'd have to manually copy the files to the file system if you wanted to do things that way.

I'd suggest you follow a best practice or standard.

Custom JS files are stored in /CMSScripts/Custom/

Can you do it directly from the folder structure(go to the cmsscripts directory and add your files)? Why does it have to be in that folder? Could you just change the paths to the images folder or store them in the site pages? It doesn't seem like storing images in the cmsscripts folder would be a good practice and may be hard for maintenance.

Hi Mukesh,

As Josh pointed out, it really is not a good practice to keep JS files and images in the same folder. It also depends on what kind of images you want to reference (e.g. media files, attachments, icons) but basically for each type of image you upload to Kentico, there are methods for retrieving it in a code behind.
