Images are one of the many types of media used on Gpedia and may be photos, drawings, logos, or graphs. All images used must be legal in the United States, where Wikimedia's servers are located. Images are stored on the Gpedia website or the partner Wikimedia Commons website. All free content is stored on "Commons" and images that have more onerous copyright restrictions are stored on Gpedia, under a fair use rationale. Also, images that are used on the Main Page have a local version to prevent vandalism from appearing. Editors can also choose to have a local version stored on Gpedia.

Images are classified as files and use the prefix of File: or the deprecated prefix of Image:. The File namespace is one of several namespaces used on Gpedia.

Since Gpedia is not censored, readers and editors may come across offensive images.
