I'm not sure of a good way to track this. I'm not sure if png supports 
arbitrary metadata which could be edited. Some ways I've seen used 
elsewhere to try to better propagate license/ownership:

* Comments on the issue-tracker issue that introduced them citing 
origin/source (typically for images that are copied, not created)
* Entry in LICENSE/NOTICE (shouldn't be done unnecessarily, of course)
* A README in the same directory with relevant info

If the images are of the podling's creation, I wouldn't be particularly 
worried. The copyright notice on your source-release and LICENSE are 
sufficient to inform downstream consumers.

Probably not the answer you're looking for, but hope it helps :)
