Some Mac users have valuable photo collections. If you keep such photos in iPhoto then anyone walking by your Mac while you’re away would have quick access to photography you may not want others to see.
Assume for a moment that your photo collection is valuable to you, but not something that should be viewed by others, but still needs to be accessible.
Encrypt your photos with powerful government approved AES encryption using an inexpensive Mac app with nothing but five star reviews. That’s Encrypt My Photos.
The app works similar to iPhoto. Create photo albums. Import photos from the menu or drag and drop. Select photos and encrypt.
It’s easy to browse the photo collection using the thumbnails. Photos can be zoomed open using both the Open With… menu selection, and the Mac’s built-in Quick Look menu (spacebar).
Encrypt My Photos makes it easy to add photos, delete photos, and even hide photos which are encrypted. Drag, drop, encrypt, add password.
Photos can be saved wherever you want on your Mac and can’t be used or viewed by anyone else unless they have the password to unlock the encrypted photos. It’s incredibly powerful and very inexpensive.
