Private Photo is a free Windows 8 app to password protect photos. As the name suggests, the app lets you easily protect your photos with password so that no unauthorized person can access your photos without your permission.
Basically, the app has built-in albums. The albums are password protected and whenever you add photos in the app, it copies the photo in the album. As it makes copy of every photo, you can delete the original photo from your PC and can access your private photos from the app only.
