As for the image only pages, you may remove the noindex meta tag and specify the parent page as the canonical url.
I guess this is the right way of doing it, will this also mean that images pages are not indexed?
not if you...
allow the image page to be crawled and indexed
The sole purpose of this experiment is to not get image pages indexed, so wonder if that would help.
