perhaps this is a candidate for using the link rel canonical element
This seems like a good option but it will also mean indexing of the large image pages, which might be a cause for my panda penalty. Also I believe that even the "rel canonical" will come under "noindex" as it is present on the same page.
Currenlty I have the image as <img src=> (embedded) so if I add a link to this image, so that it links to itself, will that make google index it then? as that will be "noindex, follow"
