Finally i found solution for more than one image upload in that custom form.Its simple concept for adding image upload more than one in custom form.Here following procedure for that image upload concept:

Step:1

Image file : Block/Adminhtml/Next/Edit/Tab/Image.php add custom image field tag in that image file.

[...]     
$fieldset->addField('collar_image', 'image', array(
            'name'      => 'collar_image',
            'label'     => Mage::helper('measurement_setter')->__('collar Image'),
            'title'     => Mage::helper('measurement_setter')->__('collar Image'),
            'required'  => true,
            'disabled'  => $isElementDisabled
        ));

 [...]

Step:2

Controller File: controllers/Adminhtml/[ModuleName]Controller.php Add that below line into saveAction()function.

//Assign that values 
 if (isset($data['collar_image'])) {
                $collar_imageData = $data['collar_image'];
                unset($data['collar_image']);
            } else {
                $collar_imageData = array();
            }
  //collar Remove Image
                if (isset($collar_imageData['delete']) && $model->getCollar_image()) {
                    $imageHelper->removeImage($model->getCollar_image());
                    $model->setCollar_image(null);
                } 
//Upload new Collar Image upload tag
$imageFile = $imageHelper->uploadImage('collar_image');
                if ($imageFile) {
                    if ($model->getCollar_image()) {
                        $imageHelper->removeImage($model->getCollar_image());
                    }
                    $model->setCollar_image($imageFile);
                } 

And then you can clear cache and index section in Var/Cache and Var/Index.

NOTICE:

[Modulename] =>your module name

For file upload field the class attribute can't be set because Magento overrides the class and put the input-file on the file upload field.

setAfterElementHtml is helpful here and we can set required-entry class using custom JS as shown below.

$fieldset->addField(
    'image',
    'image',
    array(
        'label' => Mage::helper('vteams_productlabels')->__('Image'),
        'name'  => 'image',
        'required'  => true,
        'class'     => 'this-class-never-works',
   )
)->setAfterElementHtml("<script type=\"text/javascript\">$('productlabel_image').addClassName('required-entry');</script>");
