Ey guys, how are you?
I’m developing an application that uses some pictures(.jpg, .bmp, .png,
etc.). First my concern was hide the source code, then I found this both
I’ve realized that there’s no way to completely hide your code, just
make it harder to be discovered. So, then I thought: what about the
pictures? Is there any way to hide the pictures? The objetive now is to
not show the pictures as they are, I mean the user should not see the
.jpg’s files and so on, because they can play with it, they can switch
the original pictures for some another pictures with the same name, so
when the software go to the folder and take the picture to work with it,
possibly will arise a bug, or the software will not be what expected to
be, do you understand? So I don’t have utopic expetations, I know that
if someone want to make damage will do it, what I want is to not make
the pictures files obvious for the regular/ordinary user, “hide” it in
some way, like putting another extension on them and when I require it
change it back to the original extension, or meaby encode it by default
and decode it when is needed, or whatever you can advice me.
Extra if you can update me about if there’s some way to hide the
code(or the better way to make it harder to be discovered) I’ll
appreciate it because the links above are from 2009 or around.
Thank you guys :).
