There is no guarantee that those are the final images (although they likely
are.) It has happened before that last-minute problems have been found
resulting in a need for images being replaced by fixed ones before the
announcement went out.

I suggest you wait for the announcement.  I believe the official release
(and accompanying announcement) is planned for tomorrow, so unless some
last-minute problem do pop you should not have to wait all that long.  (And
if there is some last-minute problem it is probably a good idea to wait
until it is fixed.)
