Photo Encrypt & Send

2 min read

Most Internet Service Providers (ISP) supply E-mail services and maintain both POP3 and SMTP servers. They will have some form of backup or archiving mechanism in place (I know we maintain a backup, and archive every message that comes in and out of our mail servers).

What if you wanted to send a picture that was a bit sensitive – something you didn’t want other people to see, plans for a your latest secret Submarine or other Top Secret stuff. If you send an unencrypted photograph via E-mail the chances are it is sitting somewhere on your service providers mail server where their staff have access. What if they were hacked and your pictures were uploaded to some internet web site.

Photo Encrypt and Send was written over a two day period to help protect images from prying eyes.

You can encrypt images in one of two ways. 1) Load the application, add the images, click “Encrypt and Send” then follow the prompts. 2) Right click on your selected images or images, click on “Send To”, select “Photo Encrypt and Send”, click the “Encrypt and Send” button and follow the prompts.
Note: You must install Photo Encrypt & Send to decrypt images you receive.

If you have received an encrypted image there are two ways to decrypt them. 1) Save the images onto your hard disk then right click on the saved images and click “Send To” and select “Decrypt Photos”. 2) If you have only received 1 encrypted image you can just open it from within your E-mail Client with a double click. You need to enter the password used to encrypt the pictures and select a folder to save the decrypted images into.

For security purposes you should not send the password via E-mail, you should tell the recipient the password via telephone or some other method otherwise the password is also saved by your ISP which makes the entire process pointless.
