When an image field is unexpectedly read-only

From time to time the following thing happens to people:

  1. They add an image field to an existing database.
  2. They try to add an image to the database.
  3. Cardbox reports that the image field is read-only.

Understandably, this is rather puzzling. It only happens with databases that were created with older versions of Cardbox. The quick cure is to rebuild the database with Tools > Management > Rebuild > Database. This Knowledge Base page gives a detailed explanation.
