    So say I were to take some nudie pics of someone and put them onto my computer. Is there a way to encrypt or hide the photos so that no one else can see them if they open iPhoto?:naughty: Oh yeah, I'm running Tiger if that makes a difference.

    Figured out a way! Use Hide-out in conjunction with iPhoto buddy. Hide the new library in the secret hide-out folder and hide it. It's not the most secure, but at least only the most determined snoopers would invest the time to look for your secret stash.

    if you want to really hide them, I suggest creating a folder called .nudes in your home directory. use terminal to open the folder for browsing / storage.

    Only way to find it is by using terminlas scrollback, or ls -a
