    "Secure" photo sharing

    Hey all, have a question for the community. I'd like to figure out a way to "securely" share photos with my family. I say "secure" because, well, we all know something is secure until it isn't. Here are my thoughts - I'm not opposed to having them in the cloud somewhere but I'd like them...
