Your trouble is not with the GPL. Your trouble is with digital image
design, which is complicated and does not currently use very efficient

The GPL merely makes it obvious that your problem is hard. "Don't do
that, then" is not a reasonable answer to the problem of making your
images free. It's not free unless other people can modify it to suit
their purposes. Every example you can possibly give of this form, if
valid, falls into this class.

Any license which dodges such problems is merely *giving up*. It's not
making the image reliably free.
