I added the GP screenshot gallery to my website, and have a few questions.

I want members to be able to add their own screenshots, without having full image admin rights.

In other words, a regular member should ONLY be able to add a screenshot, nothing more, nothing less. So far, the only way I've figured that someone could add a screenshot is by granting them full image admin rights. That means that they would be able to edit the image categories, display options, and images themselves. This is bad!!!

Am I missing something? Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?

sorry, I think the only way is to make them an admin...

Genghis is right, the only way to allow them to add images is to give them image editing privileges.

I give all my guild members image rights, just to encourage them to add pictures.  It very rarely happens though!

I also have instructions posted for them to email me (my web-based email, not GP) an image if they can't do it themselves.  This will allow them to submit images to you, unfortunatley it means you are still left with the task of posting them.

Thanks guys. This is unfortunate, I wanted it to be as user friendly as possible. The image editor is not very straight forward (especially to some users) and I can already foresee some of the members getting very confused.

I will probably just get them to message me their URLs. That seems like the easiest way to go about it!
