Restricted Viewer can't see images

Running SharePoint 2010.
A user who I've put in the "Restricted Readers" group cannot see certain images on a certain page.
However on the main page of our SharePoint server/website, they can view images.

The images they can't see are in the "PublishingImages/" folde0 according to the pictures properies, the images they can see are in SiteAssets/Pages folder where the page is being loaded.

Is PublishignImages a virtual folder or what?

When I add them into an Owners group they can view the said images. But when I remove them from the group, put them back intro Restricted Readers, they can view just the text and some graphics but not the actual photographs of employees (employee of the month page).

I checked the properties of the image they CAN see, and it's in a different URL than the images they cannot see.

Since someone else designed this site, what's the best way to trace/locate the picture within SharePoint, where it's pulled from, and edit permissions for that picture or folder it's in?

Its a library used by the Publishing template. You can navigate to it by appending "/PublishingImages" to you site URL.
The Restricted Readers would need view access to this library to get to its contents.

When I do that it redirects me to PublishingImages/Forms/Thumbnails.aspx and shows thumbnails

At the top says "This system library was created by the Publishing feature to store images that are used on pages in this site."

Yes, Now into List Permissions and provide the "Restricted Readers" view permission to the library

It looks like it already has access. I did check Site Actions > Site Permissions. Group's there, inherited from parent site.

I wonder if this has to do with the Picture/Image being in a "draft" state? I checked from someone else's system and it's in a "Draft" status, but there's no "Approved" radio button option from her side.

Well the contractor finally fixed, he said it was a setting on that library, that it was set with content approval. He removed it.

How do you remove content approval from the library? The instructions online do not match up with what I see on the screen when I'm signed into SharePoint?

I see where to edit List Permissions. A concealed drop-down ribbon menu. Although I still can't see that particular List I tried to edit, must be outside or hidden of the site I can manage or modify permissions on. I can modify other Lists' permissions just fine.
