I understand that the current permission options are adequate for most of the Gallery 3 installations out there: Admin and Public. However, the permissions options are inadequate for collaboration. Therefore, I do not recommend changing the default permission options, but it would be very helpful if I could toggle on "Advanced Permissions".
I am not sure how to articulate what options I would like, so I am just going to describe what I would like to do with the site.
I would like to set up a photo collaboration website where people can upload photos relative to a particular event (For example, I would like to have my friends upload their pictures in “My Wedding” album). I would like to be able to create a group that I would permit to create albums, add photos, edit and delete only the photos they uploaded, add tags to any photo, and organize albums. I do not want anybody but Admins to be able to change permissions on the album.
Current permissions only allow for an “all or nothing” setting, with the exception of letting people add photos. However, people are currently unable to edit or delete the pictures they upload if they’re only able to “add”.
