The wiki is under GNU Free Documentation License 1.2., the manual section of the wiki under that license and under the GPL. We ask for images to be licensed likewise, but users tend to forget from time to time.

Officially, uploaders must place a copyright notice under every image, like here:


I see the German manual has it also:

where you see at the bottom GPL.
Best is to use images from our own example family tree, so as to be certain you do not step on the toes of some person who does not know he is present in a screenshot. Our own example family tree is mostly centered around a 'Garner' character.
If you make screenshots yourself, do it with that famtree, you find it installed or here: http://gramps.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/gramps/trunk/example/gramps/
