How To Hide Text In Images (Steganography)

Steganography is the art and science of hiding information by embedding messages within other, seemingly harmless messages. Steganography works by replacing bits of useless or unused data in regular computer files (such as graphics, sound, text, HTML, or even floppy disks ) with bits of different, invisible information. This hidden information can be plain text, cipher text, or even images.

By using this trick your text will get hidden into any image of your choice without increasing its size or without reducing its quality. Your data will be encrypted in the image with RC_4 encryption plus SHA hashing. So, there is no need to worry that it can be easily cracked by anybody.

Here is the tutorial with trick on how to hide text in images for free:

First download imagehide software. Its a freeware utility for hiding text in an image: Click here to download imagehide

The interface of Imagehide is very simple .Once it is installed all you have to do is to load the image in which you want to hide your text (Steganography) type the text and hit the Write data option.You can also password protect the text so that it can only be opened with the help of a password.

Once you have completed the above steps then you can send the image to your friend and he/she can only open it with the imagehide software and the password that you have used. Once opened with imagehide the text can be read by your friend. So use Steganography for more secure communication.
