    You could create an encrypted disk image and put stuff on it. but thats mac only of course.

    ps- there is a True-Crypt port coming to macs but I have no idea when.
    edit: THANK YOU BRAND. osx truecrypt is here! WOOOHOOO

    wow great, this was a quick response. Umm how would i do the encrypted image, I usually just browse the web and do photography on mac, i am not too into it as it comes to small things like that. And i saw true-crypt for pc looks great, i guess i will stick with image until the port comes out!
