    Hello,

    New switcher here. Confused on how I create a zip file with a password. I've looked around and only found a solution pertaining to the terminal. I wouldn't mind that however, it's like 200 images and I don't want to have to type in each one.

    Thank you!

    Would you be opposed to creating a .rar file instead? In which case you could use UnrarX

    I would not be opposed, no. However, the individual I am sending it to... well... It's just easier using a format Windows supports natively.

    Thanks for the suggestion though. That will prove useful for some of my other friends.

    Stuffit? It sounds like it will do what you want, for a price. £6.99 on the app store in the UK for the version that can create encrypted files, also available from their website.

    Or were you looking for something free?

    Would you mind zipping the whole folder?
    Code:
    zip -e ~/path_to_put_zip_file/file.zip ~/path_to_folder/folder/
