    For my theme I´m using this plugin and also NGG tinyMCE description plugin, what happend is only my user with the role adminnistrator can change the thumbnails, others users also adminsitrator role can´t, It´s the level of the user ?

    what could be ?

    I was stumped also. I finally found that each user needing the Post Thumbnail Editor to appear needs to go to:

    Settings > Post Thumbnail Editor

    ... and, at a minimum, click the "Save Changes" button. Apparently the "thickbox" dimensions, etc. are user-specific and users must save changes on this page for the thumbnail editor to even appear for them.

    Like you, I noticed that nobody else with administrator access could see the "post thumbnail editor" link on the media screen. Editors/authors couldn't either. I think on my end I'll write some SQL to automatically make it visible for all users (for each user, I'll insert a copy of the "wp_options" settings for the admin user), so they don't have to visit the settings page.
