     This project demonstrates steganography. Steganography is a method to hide something in something else. In this case we hide a text message in a picture. The need for steganography will probably increase the next few years, because governments want to restrict cryptography. Steganography allows you to send your secrets in a picture, making it less suspicious. It is very hard (impossible?) to detect if there is a message hidden in a picture using this method, because the locations where the bits are stored are determined by a password. Without this password you cannot tell where the bits are stored. Please vote for this code if you like it!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
