I am using field permission module. I want some fields to be editable for other roles which I set using field permission module, but when I login as that user role I don't get the edit option on the node.

What I am actually trying to achieve is this:

  1. I have created a content type with fields.
  2. I want editor role users to submit pictures for that post.
  3. They should not be able to edit other fields but just this.

Field permissions do not add permissions, but only take permissions away.

If a user is not allowed to edit a node, giving him the permission to edit a field won't work. Instead you must give him permission to edit all nodes (of a certain type) and deny access to all field he may not edit. (and yes that can be a struggle if you add fields in the future)
