    Is this possible?

    I have a user with author permissions. He uploads 20 images and then uses 10. He can’t delete the unused images.


    In general, WordPress checks delete_posts capability for images and additionally if user can delete post to which image is attached. So delete_others_posts capability may be required in that case.

    If option “Force custom post types to use own user capabilities” is turned ON at URE’s Settings, then ‘delete_attachments’, ‘delete_others_attachments’ may be required the same way as with posts capabilities mentioned above.
