PPP - Pretty Private Pictures is a Windows image password encryption and Secure Steganography tool / viewer. The images when encrypted with password will show on the disk as a different innocuous looking image.
An additional example of professional usage would be sending watermarked preview images that can be unlocked for viewing or export with a password.
PPP uses security through obscurity and encrypt and conceal images inside another innocuous looking image.
Besides protecting images of your bachelor party from your boss there is also other, more professional usage where you can distribute your stock photography together with a viewer that will appear as a preview with watermark until it is unlocked.
Such image will show as a small preview in explorer or any viewer but can be later unlocked and exported into a full version with correct password.
The best is to download Trial Version!
Home and Commercial license is the same software, but the commercial license includes fully distributable special viewers that can be included with the protected images. (At this moment there is only a Windows version)
Important: We sell PPP itself in a category of Home software because it offers a comfortable level of protection and it also withstands to normal forensic probes, but it cannot be viewed as an "industry" level encryption. This is also valid for the Commercial license, the only thing that commercial license gives you in addition is the right to distribute the special stand-alone viewers.
Years ago we were selling a predecessor to the current PPP and this was a favorite option for some content providers so we simply continue to offer the same in a commercial license. Please make sure you understand the limitations.
The commercial license includes additional special stand-alone re-distributable royalty-free PPP viewers that are for viewing and optionally exporting the images and can be supplied with your pictures on CD/DVD rom or other way in unlimited quantities. There is no other restriction. (Windows only)
The special player versions don't need any installation or any registration code and will not allow to encrypt data, only to view the hidden images when password is entered and/or export the images. (Option to export images can be left off so then it will work only as a viewer)
The distributable viewer will automatically start with the folders selected that are in its path - so for example if run from CD/DVD they will start showing the images and folders on the CD/DVD rom.
The Commercial license is $150 and include:
Note: No restricted encryption
PPP use few different data obfuscation and it doesn't use any restricted encryption algorithms so it can be legally used in countries that have restriction for data encryption and neither its export doesn't fall into restricted category.
PPP offers comfortable level of protection with its obfuscation for any normal usage that also withstand to normal forensic probes but it is not a tool for a industry grade encryption (what would spies, government and military use).
Sorry, we cannot get back your lost passwords.
