    Image security (and that of the folders containing them) is a function of the OS. If you don't already know that, then attempting to set this Windows security might create more headaches than it solves. In Explorer and as an administrator, Right click on the folder containing the images,, then click on properties and the Tab Security. If you still want to proceed, I can give more explicit instructions beyond that point.

    But, no, not in Lr. I'm not aware of any plugins available for that, either. As Cletus says, currently you'll have to rely on means external to Lr.
