PPP - Pretty Private Pictures is a Windows image password protection and Secure Steganography tool / viewer. The images when encrypted with password will show on the disk as a different innocuous looking image.


Pretty Private Pictures





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.

PPP has been discontinued and
it is now free software


The PPP has been replaced with a modern, universal encryption software (that also includes image browser) called CrypTEA

Innocuous images
When protecting your images you can have them hidden inside another, innocuous looking picture (it is called Steganography), such as painting. We even supply you with couple of those Host images to get you started.


When protected, the image will show only its Host image, not the real image in explorer, any viewer or editor. The encrypting and decrypting is also fully lossless process and nothing in the image will be lost, including any special tags or data.

PPP is very comfortable to use and it works also as a fast viewer for normal or protected images in thumbnail or full size.
Batch Processing 
You can Encrypt and Decrypt single image or whole directory of images. When you supply a folders with Host images, PPP will randomly choose the Host image for Steganography and correctly format it and size down automatically.

No restricted encryption
PPP use data obfuscation and it doesn't use any restricted encryption algorithms so it can be used or exported into countries that have restriction for data encryption.  
PPP offers comfortable level of protection (the data are binary encrypted) for any normal usage that also withstand to general forensic probes but it is not a tool for strong professional grade encryption.
We have professional grade encryption tool that called CrypTEA that shares some of the features (such as image browser)
