Are there any applications that can lock files, rather than programs? For example, if I want to block certain pictures from being accessed on my memory car.

I been looking for this too, let me see what googling does, brb.

Edit:

Best answer i've found is adding a folder to the root of your sdcard and name it .nomedia, or just putting a period '.' (ie .pics) in front of whatever folder the pictures you don't want to be seen are in.
