GNU GPL question about wordpress theme


So, for my website I modified the theme code off of another theme. I would like to let other people have this code if they would like it, and also to comply with the GPL.

However, I would like my website to be special and one of a kind. I would like to just provide the bare bones of the theme without the images. Can I do this in the scope of the GPL?

Please distinguish between legal/ethical answers- if you think I should put in images because of the feel-good factor let me know.

What you want to do will totally comply with GPL,but my suggestion would be to provide different images with the code you want to publish under GPL,that way everyone interested would have a complete theme to use or work on the code and you will keep the original theme for yourself.
Btw,where and when we will be able to see the site?

Thanks alan_ri. The website is my personal one, http://www.creativehedgehog.com and I've called my theme "blue swirls". I'm working on getting the theme released soon.
