Privacy in Lightroom
Jul 10, 2013

How can I store photos securely in Lightroom so that I can prevent ocassional users of a computer from accessing certain collections of photos?  For example (not actually my case, but a good working analogy): Suppose Husband and Wife are generally into photography and catalog all of their stuff in Lightroom.  Now suppose that they also like to take some occasional (ahem) very personal shots.  How can they catalog those shots in a way that will not shock their children who also use the computer?  I assume this requires setting up a new, separate catalog, but how do you hide or lock down that catalog so that a casual user of the computer can't accidentally (or intentionally) view you personal/commercial/classified photo archive?  Ideally, this would be both hidden and password protected.

Thanks
