You need to eat a bucket of, metaphorically speaking, pickles.
I can name a million legitimate reasons to want encryption for photos. Funny how that subject is the first to enter your mind though.
How about encryption to protect PII documents like your family's SS numbers, and license info? How about for documenting injuries from car accidents where private areas are involved? How about nostalgic pictures of old girlfriend you dont want your spouse to worry about?
For the OP, I use different combinations of tools such as full disk encryption (LUKS), truecrypt, and PGP (both symmetrically and asymmetrically).
