This would probably be my #2 priority, after creating a plugin for LR.

Ya I want to know I can lock a file down tight on here before I go sticking my pictures up. Cause some I just want to save off of old memory cards and redownload them onto one from my phone. They are so old they will only load up in one phone, nothing else I have found will let me open them. And this is the only way I can find to do it..

I want to share conference photos only with the conference staff for web publicity for this year's conference. With no password (which could be changed at project end) my only option is to share with "those I send the URL (where is it?)" then delete the album. This means anyone with the url can access the photos, the same way if they shared the password with other people. I guess it's not terrible, but it's a bit clunky.

Wow! after all this time there's no answer to this question?
What's the point of entering queries here?
Photoshop.com should provide the answer, don't you think?

I'd like to be able to share pictures and/or slide shows with family, without being concerned about the whole world having access. So far, I'm finding photoshop.com to be not so user friendly.

Wow! I can't believe a consumer AND professional photography software company such as ADOBE cant do something soooooo simple as PASSWORD PROTECT a photo album. It's rudimentary software programing! I'm a photographer and I am only using this format for my personal friends and family, but if I wanted ALL of my family and personal photos for the world to see, then I would just load them all on Facebook. Even Facebook tries to pretend they are securing your stuff. Come on Adobe! You people are the premier photography editors, you should have known this would be an issue for almost all photographers (and their families) I guess you really don't know your target market do you?

I thought this was a no-brainer. Apparently not. I want to share certain conference photos with the web editor and not everyone. So if I just share that link with one person and "trust" they don't share it, how would anyone else get the link (which has no passoword). It seems to me that if it's a long intricate link, then it's the same as a password functionally as anyone with a password could share it without my knowing anyway. But with a password, I could limit access by changing the password after the editor has downloaded my shared (un-edited-raw) photos.

But still, a bit clunky as someone said. Also, when reinstalling Elements 9 on my Win 7x64 bit OS, it had to first uninstall .net 4 before the install would proceed. Seems strange and a bit uncomfortable as I don't know if that hurts security or not.

Community Powered Support - A curious title considering the complete lack of feedback from Photoshop. I too wish to add my voice to this request. There needs to be a more robust set of security options when sharing data (images) online.

The ability to password protect a "share" is a fundamental requirement - not a wish list item. Come on Photoshop! you can do far better than this.

Dear Photoshop Techies - where are you with implementing basic features for this service?

Frustrated in the UK.

Its over. They will never provide this feature. Its time to move on. There must be something better out there.

P.S. Apples MobileMe Gallery service is still working like a charm, password protected albums included.

Since I can not password protect my data in my Photoshop.com gallery, I want to delete my data from my Photoshop.com gallery. I do not see any option for deleting data from the gallery. How do I delete an album or slideshow from my Photoshop.com gallery?

I just stopped putting photos on the server. Perhaps they are short of server space or don't care about their customers at this level. It's strange that they are so great working with images, but don't seem to put much attention to the display of images on their customer's corner of their site. They could change but will they? It doesn't seem likely does it?

I thought the albums were locked and so the public can not see your photos until you unlock them or give someone (like a family member) the URL to access....is that not so? Because I have no desire for the public to access my photos!

As far as I know, the only protection for data on the servers is the URL. If someone gets the URL (web address), then that person(s) has access to the photo albums and images. What I would like to see from Adobe is password protection for data on the servers. This is the standard for the industry. This offers a far more secure environment for the data. Passwords can, of course, be changed and made more secure when needed.

I guess it is pointless to put an entry here about getting password protection on my galleries? However, I refuse to give up. Please Adobe...

This really isn't a Photoshop issue, it's an Adobe issue. After several years of being frustrated by the corporate arrogance of Adobe I've finally just accepted the FACT that they (literally) don't care what you think. They've got your money, and that's all they're interested in. I bought Photoshop for its bare essentials, and not because of this or any other marketing toy that they've added to entice us. Face it, they don't give a rip, and no one from Adobe is even monitoring this site.
