    Default Viewing photos from restricted profiles

    Hey, guys. So I just created a restricted profile on my Nexus 7 2nd edition. The goal of the restricted profile is to provide a "kiosk"-esq style profile for kids I interact with at work. Currently, I allow the restricted profile to have access to the camera and gallery for them to take pictures and I would then later post them to instagram for our social media page. I don't like the idea of them having access to the companies instagram, so, obviously, I deny that permission. The question I have is, is it possible to access, view, and edit the photos from the restricted profile from the owner profile, but NOT the other way around. Essentially, I want to create a one way street here, but can't figure out how. The photos seem to be independent per profile and I'm wondering how to change that.

    Could you have the photos auto-upload to a service such as Dropbox, Google plus (Photos) and pull the photos from there? You can still lock those Apps to prevent access. Does that sound like a workable solutions?

    I don't believe so. From what I can tell, restricted accounts do not have access to any accounts to sync, unless I'm missing something here.
