Sorry, I had understood previously that the pictures would be
published and you wanted to keep the addresses private. If this is
not the case then I don't see much problem, you don't have to publish
any new data to anyone, you can make the location available to just
the user who submitted the picture -- there's no need to publish this
information to any other users because each user's account could
equally well live in a separate database. Although I may be
misunderstanding the issue again.
