    Whats the easiest way to hide photo albums?

    Don't want my new girlfriend to see old pics of other girls in the past.

    Thanks

    right click > move to trash > right click trash > press cmd+shift+delete (this will secure empty trash)

    Stick them on a USB drive or something off your main machine.

    way to start the relationship off on some good old fashioned trust

    Agree with this...

    However for the sake of completeness, you could put them in a hidden folder. Stick them in a folder called exes. Open terminal and type:

    sudo -s
    mv ~/path/to/exes ~/path/to/.exes
    exit

    In Unix, folders/files that start with a period are hidden. To view them use a widget or app to view hidden files.
