Hide Files Including ZIP & RAR Archives In Pictures With Steganography


While with all the advancements stated in technology, our channels for sending secret messages are becoming much more evolved and complex, lots of the methods employed for encrypting the messages continue to be quite ancient. Yes, I’m pointing towards steganography - among the oldest and quite a few genius methods man developed to hide messages from prying eyes. Before the internet, email, phones and even coaches or horses, messages were sent on foot and when you wanted to show a secret message, you can either had to have the messenger memorize it or hide it somehow through various steganography techniques. The digital same as that art still exists today in the form of a host of computer applications. Steganography is one particular open source app for Windows designed to hide files in images. Although, we’ve covered similar tools previously, important different from them is its capability to hide file archives, including ZIP and RAR.

In case you’ve never used a stego tool before, these applications basically allow you to embed virtually any files or text into another item, which can be usually a graphic. Although there’s no guarantee your government’s spying agencies won’t have the ability to decipher your message, it’s generally a pretty safe method for sending sensitive information online while making it appear as if you’re merely sending a picture. Now that you know very well what steganography is, lets find what this app are able to do for you.

Steganography comes with a quite in basic terms interface with two tabs, one for setting up a new file to be able to hide your personal important file in a photo, as well as to open such a file and extract giving her a very data from your image. Though during testing, I pointed out that the tool wasn’t as effective as it should be in opening existing items.


To get started, click ‘Image’ to specify the origin image file. The application only allows hiding files in JPEG pictures. Next, find the file you want to hide, then the output directory as well as name with the output file. You can also click on the Reset button to start over, while clicking ‘Create’ instantly creates the new file with the specified destination, using the important file embedded with it. You can open the image via any image viewer, and it'll show up as just a regular image. Although, you can use the tool itself to spread out your hidden file, another step-around to do this is usually to simply rename the file, changing its extension from .jpg for the extension with the file you embedded in it.


For instance, when the embedded item can be a ZIP file, simply changing the file’s extension to .zip, will enable you to open the file in almost any file archiver like 7-zip, WinRAR, WinZip etc.


The application is available for free and creates both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8.
