Abstract

A simple image hiding scheme in spatial domain is proposed in this chapter. The main idea is to utilize a threshold mechanism to embed as much information of the secret image into the cover image as possible. The changing of the cover image is hard to be discovered by the human eyes because the threshold mechanism is setup especially to fit the human visual system. The experimental results show that the human visual system has improved the quality in terms of perceptibility. On the hiding capacity issue, the proposed method has capability to embed two times the size of the secret image of previous work. A partial encryption strategy is used for the security of the secret image. In addition, a two-dimensional permutation function, torus automorphism, is also introduced in this chapter.
