Sometime we don’t want to give our WordPress blog contributors access to the media tab because that gives them the ability to manipuate other user’s images and so forth. Well here’s a little fix that helps you block contributors from using the media tab without having to install extra WordPress plugins. Copy the code below into your functions.php file in your theme directory:

function remove_medialibrary_tab($tabs) {
return $tabs;
if(!current_user_can('edit_others_posts')) add_filter('media_upload_tabs','remove_medialibrary_tab');

That should work. Enjoy!
