Steganography: Freeware to hide archive files in JPG images

Got some private archive files? Let’s see another way to hide those files and make them private. Steganography is the art and science of writing hidden messages in such a way that no one, apart from the sender and intended recipient, suspects the existence of the message, a form of security through obscurity. But here we’ll be discussing about Steganography, the free utility for Windows which works in a similar way.

Hide files in image

Steganography is a freeware that lets you hide your archive files in JPG images without even giving any idea or a hint to anyone that you’ve hide some archives into this image. The software is unique in its own way and has some never-seen abilities. No one can even have an idea that you’ve hidden an archive into the JPG image, whatever may be the JPG image.

The software is really very easy to use and operate. The interface is user friendly and required no extra skills to make everything happen. To hide an archive into JPG file, choose the image file that you want to use for hiding the archives. And now choose the archive file that you want to hide inside it.

Next you need to choose the location, where the file is to be saved and that’s all how you can hide the archive into JPG image. To get the same archive out of the JPG image, switch to the open tab and then choose the image file that contains hidden files, hit the open button to view the files inside the archive. Before opening files, make sure that WinRAR is installed.

Open

Even if you don’t want to use this method, you can directly open the JPG using any normal archive manager like 7-Zip.

Once you’ve saved an archive into the JPG image, the image file works as it normally does and you can view it and print it normally but remember if you’ve decided to edit the image and saved it again, the image may loose its archives.

The software is really very useful, but a drawback I noticed is that it doesn’t support password encryption, anyone having an idea of opening such files can open it easily through 7 Zip or WinRAR. Password support may have given it an extra layer security – but still the program is worth checking out. We’re hope to see such features in the next version.

It is available on sourceforge.net but we have removed the link as some antivirus software throw up a warning. So use it at your own risk, if you still wish to check it out.
