Abstract: It is a unique approach for steganography using a reversible texture synthesis where rather than using existing image the algorithm will create new texture image using source texture and embeds message by texture synthesis process. The new image with similar appearance can be re-created by using texture synthesis process. The size of new image can be user specified. The important concept behind this kind of steganography is texture synthesis process. We can extract the embedded message and original texture image from final stego synthetic texture image. This new technique of steganography using reversible texture synthesis provide some advantages like the embedding capacity is directly proportional to the size of stego image. There will be no image distortion since size of new texture image is user specified. Also it provides the ability to recover source texture from the stego texture image. We can create visually plausible texture images by using this technique.
