How to get edit own permissions in a picture library?

  Date: Oct 13    Category: MOSS    Views: 1264

I am running Sharepoint Services 2007. I want a picture library
for users to store their photos for use in their personal account settings.
Problem is that I don't want other users changing the picture they uploaded.

How can I get "edit only own" permissions on a picture library?

Picture Libraries don't have it. Maybe try a custom list and reference
the attachment for the photo?

How secure does it have to be? You could try creating just one view
that only shows items when the Created By is [ME]. That's security by

You should be able to use a picture column rather than an attachment.

There is an optional, in-built level of permissions - on a basic list

* over and above the normal permissions you set for a user/group (it is
really underneath)
For a specific list - used by a team - it is possible OOTB to have
* team manager - view/edit all items in the list
* each team member - only able to view their items in the list
List -> Settings -> Advanced settings
* Read access = Only their own
Give Team Manager - Manage List permission => they can view / edit all items

Certainly works on a basic list - don't know about the Picture Library list.

In the end, this is what I did, it is somewhat
easy, and it works very well.

I created a new basic custom list.
The list has a field for picture/hyperlink, formatted to photo.
The user uploads a photo as an attachment.
For it to show up, however in the photo column, the address of the attachment
has to be in the photo column.
The basic list already includes "edit only own" permissions as an option - the
photo library doesn't have this.

The shortcomings are that you don't get the nice photo-library format - you just
get the regular list format. Also, the user needs to know enough to put the url
of the attachment for the url of the photo.

Okay, actually, this is a little clumsy. First, you have to add an attachment,
then click OK to set it. Now you go back and edit the record again so you can
copy the url of the attachment into the Photo block (if you want to see the
photo). If you don't need to see the photo this isn't necessary.

Hey! Instead of creating a list for this, you can just attach the photo right
in their account settings entry in People and Groups. You first must attach the
file, click OK, then go back to edit and copy the url of the attached photo into
the url for "photo". Then you can set their account settings to "edit only
