Abstract

With the revolution of information technology and Wide Area Networking, data has become less and less private where the access of media as well as the attempts to change and manipulate the contents of media data have become a common case. For that, we need to use a watermarking technique to protect the copyright of the media as well as for digital right management but without leaving a visual effect. We presented a watermarking technique that deals with images where the used technique to embed a wavelet compressed watermark image within the least significant bit (LSB) of the cover image pixels in a specific pattern which won't be visible after embedding and will cause the cover image to become copyrighted using the embedded watermark image that can be extracted later.
