Thanks! And good catch. We adjusted the licenses indicated on Flickr to
match the actual rights on the images. We set our rights at the collection
level so Flickr's batch edit made this a quick change.
FWIW the PS Magazine and Jackson Ward sets are public domain, but Flickr's
options limited us to the least restrictive CC license.

Awesome project. I'm curious: what is the license of the images posted to
flickr? Are they have the same license (per flickr account default set --
whatever it is) or are there license variations among the images?
