Edit Owner

Allows you to change the owner of an item


This module will add an option in the item's 'options' 'edit' menu to allow changing the owner of an item:

1: If an 'album' is edited, the module has a checkbox to change the owner of all photos within that album as well
   a: If it's not checked, then -only- the album owner is changed
   b: If it's checked, then the owner for the album and -all- of the album's photos are changed
   c: If the owner selection is not changed, then the album owner (and album photos) are NOT changed

2: For 1b above, note that it will -not- change the owner of subalbums photos within an album - (the photos in the subalbum will not be changed, it will however change the subalbum owner itself.)

3: If a 'photo' is edited, then there is no checkbox as in item 1 above
   a: If the owner selection is not changed, then the photo owner is NOT changed
