PS. Are we old enough to see the photos? ;)

There are no photos yet and I've been told there will be none unless I figure this out. :D

Store them right here in this thread. They should be safe from the kiddies here.

Whatever tool you use to index your photos you should IMHO:
a) create truecrypted directory especially for these photos
b) point your DAM tool to store indices/thumbs in that directory too (if that DAM tool supports portable profiles/catalogs or something similar it could be easy)
c) keep it locked always until access is needed
d) close the door when postprocessing and work without earphones ;)

good suggestions. I want them hidden because I do not want my 7 year old, or my 12 year old, seeing nude photos of his mom! Even tastefully done nudes.

I'm afraid of hiding a folder because they will still be .jpg files. And those can be searched for. I would prefer a password protected, hidden folder if that is possible.

I will look into TrueCrypt. I have never heard of it but it looks like a good option.

Oh they are of their mother :lol:

My kids are younger but I guess we're a bit more open with nudity in our house. My 4.5 year old still takes showers with me :oops:


Hope you find a solution!

I wouldnt opt for just saving them in a weird folder name, programs like picasa will still search and display everything

Easy.... If you run windows

1) Create a seperate user account for you and your kids
2) Make your kids account Limited
3) Password protect your account and make your folders private
4) Change Logon to fast switch

There you go, the files in your account in your my docs are private and no one can see and the kids account is limited which helps against spamware and virus

I would recommend making a user account for kids and then making sure your account is private - or use an external drive.

I would discourage use of 3rd party software because if it goes wrong or your computer goes wrong - there is a greater chance of them being lost for good than with OS methods.

Just make a separate account for them so they can logon themselves. Therefore they have their own desktop stuff and favorites for the internet.

Rename them without a made up file extention, like .qzw for instance. When you want to open one, rename and put in the real extention tiff, jpg, whatever.

You can save them in a compressed folder and then it's easy to apply a password to that folder to stop anyone else opening it.
Alternatively, when you right-click (pc) on a folder, you can see the security tab, where you can set which user profiles can see which shared folders. If all your family have their own user account to choose when they turn on the computer, this is a very easy way to limit what people can see.

The easiest route is as DomWolf mentions. This will prevent the kids from accessing the folder, while still giving you easy read/write access. The ZIP/RAR methods also work, but will be more cumbersome for you to access the files.

If you let us know what OS (Mac, Windows XP/Vista/7, Linux(!?)), etc I'm sure somewhere can give you step by step help if you need it.

Or you can keep everything on an SD card and safe it in your wallet. Assuming they're not looking in there for anything.
