I really appreciate how easy it is to create an image gallery with a table. Unfortunately, there is no way to avoid the fact that the handles and file info become visible to the viewer with every mouseover.
I wish there was a way to temporarily hide these handles, links and buttons so that nothing shows up on hovering when clicking on a thumbnail to open the lightbox.
A small light grey lock icon, could indicate the state of the table being locked.
All users who have permission to edit should be able to turn this lock feature on and off at any time.
The lock feature, which is available for the team subscription, unfortunately does not disable all displays of a table. Basically it is not about permissions to edit, but only the temporary hiding of the handles, the frame, the file info etc…
