Encrypting files is easy, but is it convenient enough for everyday use? If you have a collection of digital photos, storing them in an encrypted archive surely cuts down on unauthorized access. But, this way of storing the pictures restricts legitimate access, making it much slower and overall much less convenient. Besides, there is a security concern connected with encrypted files or archives: in order to view the pictures, you generally have to decrypt them and save them somewhere on a hard drive, opening a security loophole that allows an unauthorized person to grab the file and get the very image you wanted to protect.

PicaSafe not just encrypts your private photos inside of a single password-protected executable file, but also allows you to view them by simply running the file and entering a password. It creates a Windows executable that contains your pictures securely encrypted. To view or print the snapshots, just double-click that file and enter your password and your pictures will be displayed in a convenient manner or played back in a slide-show. No files are created on the hard drives, and thus no way for anyone to snatch those images from right under your nose!

Are you a fashion or a wedding photographer? Impress your customers by delivering full-size proofs instead of watermarked matchbox-size copies!

Want even more security? Fool the hackers by making them believe they've nailed it! Add an alternative set of pictures, and that set will be displayed if they try to view your album without knowing the right password.

You can showcase PicaSafe albums on any computer even if PicaSafe is not installed, and no traces will be left when you stop the show. You can even create new protected albums without installing PicaSafe! Fill your flash disk with protected digital albums, bring the stick with you and show the images on any Windows PC.

If you need to recover the originals, you can easily extract them back with your original password.
