Therefore, we obtain the average payload and average MSE using the perfect square number, as illustrated in Table 2. First, if the difference value is located in the first subrange, there is no modification needed, imabes this design does not violate the basic concept of PVD and HVS Human Visual System. Besides, it is intuitive to design it using the width of the power of two.

Some studies focused on increasing the plxel-value [ 358 ] using LSB [ 24 ] or a readjusted process [ 67 ] to improve the embedding capacity or image quantity. The grayscale cover image pixel valuewhere is a pixel index.

The experiment results also show the proposed scheme has better image quantity and higher capacity. We also use the same test images as the real test shown in Figure 4and the experiment results are shown in Table 5.

For example, we choose a pair of two consecutive pixels 48,80 from the stego image; then. For each rangeif the width of this range is larger thanthen we divide this range into two subranges: From This Paper Topics from this paper.

Table of Contents Alerts. In the extracting phase, the same Steps 1 pixel-falue 2 in the embedding algorithm are used. In recent years, several studies have been proposed to improve the PVD method. According to range numberthe secret data is embedded into the cover image by the embedding procedure.


If is small, then the block is located within the smooth area and will embed less secret data. The width of this range isand the embedding bit length is. Obtain the range in pixel-valyewhere and are the lower bound and the upper bound ofand is the number of embedding bits.

A Steganographic Method Based on Pixel-Value Differencing and the Perfect Square Number

Finally, we modify 47,81 to 43, For example, if the pixel value is 34, the nearest perfect square number is 36; pixdl-value we have range: Other criteria include embedding capacity and invisibility to human eyes.

The perfect square number provides an elegant mathematical model to develop a new quantization range table, which divides each range into two subranges for embedding different numbers of secret bits. In addition, we offer a theoretical pixeel-value to show our method is well defined. Tatwadarshi International Conference on Innovations in….

Liu and Shih [ 5 ] proposed two extensions of the PVD method, the block-based approach and Haar-based approach, and Yang et al. Differrncing, Section 5 concludes this paper. The width of the range is no longer a power of two, and if the difference stegqnographic is located in the first subrange, there is no modification needed. For example, we choose a pair of two consecutive pixels 47,81 from the cover image; then.

According to PVD embedding scheme Step 5average to and. View at Google Scholar. The grayscale stego image pixel value. Pixel Value Differencing a Steganographic method: Besides, it is intuitive to design it by using the width of the power of two.


There are two types of the quantization range table in Wu and Tasi’s method. Showing of 2 extracted citations. The quantization range table is designed with contiguous ranges, and the range table ranges from 0 to Introduction The pixel-value differencing PVD [ 1 ] scheme provides high imperceptibility to the stego image by selecting two consecutive pixels and designs a quantization range table to determine the payload by the difference value between the consecutive pixels.

The first was based on selecting the range widths of [8, 8, 16, 32, 64, ], to provide large capacity. The average error for each range is calculated by the following formula: The embedding procedure of proposed method is summarized as follows.

In addition, our study ingeniously uses the perfect square number to achieve the goal. The capacity and PSNR seem to be affected by the secret data, with more pixel-value difference falling in the first subranges and matching the secret data; we can obtain more capacities and less distortion.

In particular, we propose a new technology to design the range table. Citations Publications citing this paper. If we choose a proper width for each range and steganograpnic the proposed method as mentioned above, we can obtain better image quantity and higher capacity.

Repeat Steps 1 — 5 until all secret bits are embedded and the stego image is produced. Secret communication via image hiding in image by pixel value differencing A.
