Is it possible to encrypt pictures and other files like audio etc with GPG? If yes then how to? If not then why not?.


Yes this is possible. gpg normally handles files as binary and you don't have to do anything special to encrypt pictures or audio.

gpg -c yourfile.mp3

for symmetric encryption and

gpg -e yourfile.mp3

to encrypt with your (pregenerated) private key.
