If you have uploaded an image as a private file it is not accessible by other users even if any user has access to the node. Please check "Upload destination" in image field settings.

  • no, my Upload destination is set to Public Files. in fact, there is no choice :) and it should be Public Files in addition, I have a gallery that I made it myself. I have this problem there too. but only in gallery page that preview picture as gallery_thumbnail (a cutome view that I created) in fact the original picture shown but the gallery_thumbnail picture not shown :(

  • Yes, it should be public to make it accessible to other users, but in fact there are two ways to store images (and other files) - private and public which you can see on the "Image" field setting and on every file itself. Have you checked admin/structure/file-types/manage/image/display and admin/structure/file-types/manage/image/file-display?

  • in admin/structure/types/manage/gallery-image/display when I change the preview to for example thumbnail(100*100) and click Update, it changes but when I refresh the page it is None(original) again. :( I don't know why it never changs?! :(
