Abstract

This paper attempts to improve the quality and the modification rate of a Stego Image. The input image provided for estimating the quality of an image and the modified rate is a bitmap image. The threshold value is used as a parameter for selecting the high frequency pixels from the Cover Image. The data embedding process are performed on the pixels that are found with the help of Threshold value by using LSBMR. The quality of an image is estimated by the value of PSNR and the modification rate of an image is estimated by the value of MSE. The proposed approach achieves about 0.2 to 0.6 % of improvement in the quality of an image and about 4 to 10 % of improvement in the modification rate of an image compared to the edge detection techniques such as Sobel and Canny.
