Binhex is pointless these days; ZIP is a PC-ism; StuffIt & its inherent MacBinary should be ideal (just find the right version of StuffIt for maximum compatibility). The important criterion here is ensuring decompressor availability, imho, on the systems people will want to unpack on (System 6? 7? 8? 9? OS X?)

Related images in one archive seems a good idea to me.
