    How do I delete a password protected Disk Image. I was using it to keep some file secure, and I don't need it anymore. How do I go about deleting it and the contents from the computer?

    You could just delete the disk image entirely, if you're not needing it anymore...
    Just drag it and drop it in the Trash.

    Can you change the password of a disk image once it's been set? Or would you just remove the contents, delete the disk image, and create a new one with a different password.

    Also when you delete a disk image, does it also free up the space that disk image was taking up?

    Password can be changed in disk utility. If you delete a disk image, it is deleted, along with everything inside it. Once deleted, the disk space is freed up.
