Protect Your Images

When sending a copy of a project to a client, you may want to protect the file, so that it requires a password to print or edit. This will prevent your client from using it before you get paid!

To protect your file save it as a PDF (File > Save As… and choose Photoshop PDF). In the Save PDF dialog box, Click “Security” and under “Permissions,” you can enter a password to prevent printing and editing.

You can view the files in Acrobat, but you won’t be able to print it or copy it.
