What kind of Caption is needed here?

I plan to use some Wikipedia images in a book which I plan to sell. And I need to be sure I am allowed to use these pictures.

Here are two sample images with different license requirements.

How am I required to annotate them? Can I use these for commercial purposes?

Thanks

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Btw, I am not an attorney and this is not "legal" advice. Just the opinion of a layman. If you want to be on rock-solid ground, engage an Intellectual Property attorney. Regards, Joe
