Photos and Images sharing within a private group in most file sharing service provider, the photos and images may be viewed by public. Many private would reluctantly to post their photos in the public file sharing server.

LockImage is a new project in password protecting your photos and images. LockImage is available FREE for web users. LockImage basically create an executable file containing a single image and a password is protecting the file for common viewing. This would be very useful tool to many web user.

However, there are some issue related to the executable file :
  • Sending email with executable file is extremely dangerous. There is still a possibility some IT geek hijack your file and replace it with new executable file.
  • Many server (company) will quarantine email with executable file attached in it. This increases the probability of email quarantine and lead to mis-communication.
  • This can be another opportunity and increases frequency for virus spreading.
  • Many file sharing service provider (if not all) would resist uploading of executable file. This may seriously impact the effectiveness of implementation of this project.
  • Presently it is only capable of locking single file. Locking images would be time consuming.
I believe LockImage's owner can read this post and take necessary upgrading on LockImageas the intention and usage of this tool is great.
