[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 while still making them freely available free for non-commercial use.

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 value...
