    I dont really know how to work computers I need help. I bought a gym membership and starting to lose weight. I wanted to take photos of myself to save to the computer so that a year or 2 down the line, I can see the big progress I made. I have am overweight and have stretch marks and it would be embarrassing to me if my husband or daughter saw my progress photos. How do I make it to where nobody can see them? please help thx

    Or you could create your own user account that only you can log in to.

    Or an even simpler method - buy a usb memory stick, even the smallest one, say 1Gb that you can pick up for a couple $, will have plenty of capacity. Save the photos on that. Keep the memory stick in your purse when not using it. No need for passwords or new users, no possibility of anyone accidentally browsing it or wondering what this "secret" folder is on the Mac.

    Good luck :)
