[I thought I asked this once, but don't find it in the archives and 
nobody responded. Apologies if repeated]

I am involved with a research conference that wishes to make its 
accepted papers available under something like *Attribution-NoDerivs 2.5
but also make some images---including images that may be embedded in the 
papers---available under a non-commercial license such as 
**Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 or possibly 
**Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.5. 

Do our wishes conflict? How should we deal with this while leaving the 
owners the least work to permit unfettered commercial attributed 
no-derivative use of the papers, but otherwise in commercial control of 
the images.

It's possible that we could just go with **Attribution-NoDerivs 2.5 for 
everything, but in my experience, scientists have a strong (often 
unjustified) belief that their beautiful images are of high commercial
