If you are distributing a GPL-licensed product with images, such as a WordPress theme or plugin, your best bet is to opt for using images like these with the CC0 1.0 License or Public Domain license. Otherwise you will have issues when submitting you WordPress theme to the WordPress directory. The vast majority of FREE image collections on the web include images that fall under the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 2.0 license. While these images are fine for blogging, they cannot be distributed with GPL-licensed software. Meaning that they cannot be distributed in the WordPress theme directory.
