Thanks Steve will pass on your feedback via this link. Great idea about images be great to test that out on one of the resources? It would also test be a good experiment for the remixing of the licences, we'd have to keep/use their existing licence we'd just add images by (whoever created them into the licence) .

What a fantastic resource, I'll forward this link to the sculpture technicians here at Wimbledon. It would be great to add some more images from their experience's as educators. 

This is an excellent opportunity to forge some collaborations and promote open educational resources.
