Could you please explain what is wrong about that file? I uploaded it from flickr where it is under a CC-by2.0 and added all information about the author/photographer. So what is the problem? --Clarv (talk) 13:28, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Wait... Is the problem that the software is under the free license GPL and the picture is under the CC-by2.0 (that would be OK), but that both licenses cannot be mixed? Sorry, that is ridiculous.
Point of information: The flickr-user is the digiKam project lead developper and coordinator. Out of my view he has the right to make screenshots of the gpl-licensed software and publish under another license. --Clarv (talk) 13:37, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
