It might be simpler to add pem/upload/.htaccess containing:

<Files "*">
Order Allow,Deny
Deny from all
<Files ~ "\.(jpg|png)$">
Allow from all
Satisfy any

The upload directory should not be "browsable". As you can upload files inside, the permissions have to be "wide", it may attract intruders and let them upload unwanted files and browse them.

In the upload directory, a .htaccess file, with :

order allow,deny
deny from all

PEM source code should use readfile function for screenshots as it already does with the zip files.

Warning : we have to deal with existing remote clients (like plugin manager in PhpWebGallery)
