This project acquaints an algorithm of digital watermarking which is based on Least Significant Bit (LSB), Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) and Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT). In accord with the characters of human vision, the main objective of the project is to be focused on comparative analysis of this algorithms on the basis of invisibility, distortion and robustness to attacks. The simulation results show that this algorithm is invisible and has good robustness for some common image processing operations.By the use of Matlab software, the algorithms have been coded and then implemented properly.
