I know this issue was addressed in the D5 version. Anonymous users on my site are not able to see images uploaded through imagecache. My file system setting is set to private download. Am I missing a setting or can imagecache only be used with public downloads? Thanks.

Why do you often find the answer right after you post a question to the Drupal issue queue? It's like magic!

I see now that there are permission settings for each image preset on admin/user/permissions. Checking those off for all users did the trick.

Can I recommend a setting that would automatically check these permissions off by default? When a new preset is created, I can foresee this easily being overlooked.

In the meantime, here's a patch to the documentation.

Title: Does D6 version work with private downloads? » Document the need to grant permissions to presets in README.txt

Thanks committed that to HEAD. I'd be into a separate patch that assigned those permissions by default when a preset is created...

FYI, I think the README should had wording that the per-preset permissions only work for private file systems. http://drupal.org/node/678066
