The images are protected. Upon upload, a 12 digit password is  
generated and given to the user in the form of the URL. Only someone  
with that 12 digit number is able to view the image. Someone could try  
and brute force the 12 digits. If this becomes an issue, I will detect  
the attempted retrieval of some large number of non-existent images  
and block the IP.

The images are easily accessible by someone with the secret key. They  
don't even know that they are using the key, but they are. I can make  
the key 100+ alpha/digits, but I will fix that problem if it become one.

Your email points out the fact that I should inform the users of this  
on my site, so that they can know what is being done to protect their  
privacy. Thanks so much!

I really appreciate all of the feedback.
