I take lots of pictures of construction projects I have built and also share those same pictures with other contracting companies by putting the pics on CD and giving it to them.

What I would like to know is, how can I protect my pictures so that the other people who get a copy cannot change the picture data info? I want to have my name in the picture properties as the author, but I further want to have it so nobody else can change that information.

Is this possible? I use Zoombrowser to organize my pics, as I like the program.

You can't. You could just give out prints, watermarked, but I could probably remove it in photoshop.

Save as pdf in PS. That'll allow the setting of a password for certain tasks (editing / printing)
Never tried that though, and there are probably ways to get around that as well.

There is no way to protect the pictures. You may want to consider giving others low res and watermarking them with you info (still not bullet proof though)
