Anyone know what the origin and purpose of these images is (or was)? They can be put into these categories:

These files are all renderings of the TIFF files that are distributed in the libtiff samples package (e.g. pics-3.8.0.tar.gz) on libtiff ftp sites. Presumably they are there so that people can see what they are supposed to look like while they implement their decoder.

With the conversion to Sphinx, I've copied over the use of all the images on the same documentation pages with the exception of the documentation icons. However, they don't appear to have any particularly obvious connection to the pages they are associated with or any obvious connection to the TIFF file format or library. If the origin and copyrights are unclear, and they don't add any particular value to the documentation, would anyone object to removing them all?

These files do have a long-term association with libtiff. At least the libtiff sample files have been available for as long as I had any exposure at all to libtiff.
