Turning the Photo Gallery off means that none of your users will be able to see or access it. Don't worry if your Photo Gallery contains images before you turn it off, they will still be there when you decide to turn it back on!
Turning the Photo Gallery on will allow users in your Minga to upload photos to the Photo Gallery. You decide which roles are allowed to upload to the Photo Gallery. The below screenshot is for a Minga School, if you are in MingaConference, you will see the Attendee role. Owners and Managers are always allowed to post to the Photo Gallery.
