Question
Dear Steve

Is it possible to protect photo images in the digital Camera with a password?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Hi Prashant,

Not that I am aware.  The camera is usually just the means of capturing the image, which would then be stored elsewhere in the long term, usually a computer hard drive.  It is your hard drive that needs password protection, and if access to your hard drive is password protected, then so is access to your photo files.  Copyright protection can be added to images by embedding metadata.  This will help to add copyright protection to your image, so that it is protected once it has been moved from your hard drive, for example to share via social media.
