Looking for a way to password protect a file within my Home folder
 
I am looking for a way to protect a folder within my Home file on my desktop.

The exact location is: file:/home/jimmy/Wallpapers/Directory

Anyone know how to put a password on it so everytime i try to access it a pass is needed?

why don't you just change the permissions accordingly??

Guess: -> Parents machine, interesting "wallpapers". :)

If you don't have root, just bzip the directory contents and encrypt with gpg.

If you have root, sort out the permissions or use loopback.
