So does dragging files from one app to another need some other flavor added?
Maybe I'm missing something, but can't you just use this:

[[NSPasteboard generalPasteboard] clearContents];
[[NSPasteboard generalPasteboard] writeObjects:@[url]];
Does that give you the multiple images thing where different destinations can rearrange the images in stacks, grids, or whatever? My drag source is a collection view or a table view, so the initial drag image[s] is a carbon copy of the selected items' thumbnails or table rows.
