You can then drag the file's icon into an Open dialog to upload it to a photo-sharing service, for instance, but whatever you do, don't move or rename that file!

This is definitely the most secure way to make passwords. They are all random and very secure. If you can organize them for retrieval whenever you need them, great. If have trouble keeping dozens of random passwords ready when you need them, you may need a different strategy. I've spent a lot of time on this subject and just wrote a book on it. The concept is called the password sandwich. You create a short ingredient list and have a recipe for creating your password based on the site. If you take a little time to plan it out, you can keep all your passwords on a simple wallet card that if lost, will not reveal anything. The book won't be out until 4/15, but I do give a good bit of info on the website. If you google "Password Sandwich" or "healthy passwords" you should find the website. The password worksheet page under bonus materials gives a good bit of information without having the book.
