changing password on encrypted disk images

Is there a way to change the password on an encrypted disk image created in Disk Utility? I've created on a while ago to hold data securely, and would like to change the password on it now.

thanks!
Mark

You can use the convert function to create a new image of the same format with a different password, and then delete the old image.
