A Bit-Decomposition Adaptive Watermarking Algorithm Based on the Multi-Polar Mask
Traditional digital watermarking usually adopts the gray image as hidden information, more embedded information result in largely modifying more image data. Binary image can guarantee good affection of human vision, a bit-decomposition adaptive watermarking algorithm based on the mask is proposed. According to the superiority of binary, classifying binary images to three kinds of sub graph (High, Middle, and Low-sub graph); multi-masks are constructed by the importance of different sub graphs and cover the original image. Experimental results demonstrate the proposed scheme not only has better visual quality, but also is very robust to common image processing and geometric attacks.
