If you set it to 'subscriber', a subscriber, contributor, author, editor, and administrator will be able to add images and create a gallery. You as a super-admin will always have full control of the NextGEN Gallery settings and options. These role settings do not apply to you. 'Roles and Capabilities' is accessed under Gallery > Other Options > Roles/Capabilities. If you do not plan to have anyone else manage your site, you can skip this setting.
