Yes, thank you for clarifying you question:

The answer is the latter:  authentication required.
In fact, there are three levels of privacy on these images and documents:
    public:              (everyone can view)
    passworded:  (password required for viewing: say, your
                              family only.  This pw specific to these views)
    private:             (only you, the owner, have access - so only your
                              login permits you to see these views)

Presumably, most views are public, but this has to be the owner's 
decision, no ?
