From documentation:

If a non-admin user belongs to a group that is allowed to have personal galleries (configurable on the groups manager), he will have a reduced album manager page as well (named "Create / order my albums") where he can create albums within his personal gallery (aka "user gallery").
I do not see this link anywhere in my theme while viewing the gallery in user mode.

Any assistance would be appreciated, thanks.

Use an actual test user account when testing user permissions.

Read up the docs to find out what "user mode" is meant to be used for:

Admin mode & User mode

When you are logged in as an administrator, the script provides two modes of operation : Admin mode & User mode. You can switch between Admin & User mode by clicking on the corresponding link in the menu bar at the top of the screen.

When you are in admin mode, you can administer your gallery using the menu bar that appears when in admin mode, as shown below :

When you are in user mode you are still logged in as an admin user, but the admin controls (the admin menu bar etc.) are hidden from the screen to give you a basic preview of what the page would look like for "regular users". However (as you still are logged in as admin), certain permissions and options in user mode will still look the same as if you were in admin mode; you can not use "User Mode" to see what a non-admin user is actually allowed to see. To see what a casual visitor can see and do on your site, simply log out. To see what a registered user can see and do on your site, create a test user account (non-admin) and log in with this particular user (when doing this it is recommended that you use two different browsers, NOT two instances of the same browswer, to view your site so you can stay logged in as admin on one and view what regular users see while making changes in admin mode. You will have to refresh the non-admin mode screen to see what changes you incorporated).
