It isn't enough to create a public category. You still need to assign tiki_p_view_image_gallery to the Anonymous group. Then ensure that your other (non-public) categories restrict access to only Registered users.
Register at tiki.org and you'll be able to use the account at any *.tiki.org site, thanks to the InterTiki feature. A valid email address is required to receive site notifications and occasional newsletters. You can opt out of these items at any time.
