Steganalysis is the art and science of detecting the embedded message in a multimedia document, this document may be text, image, audio or video. Many studies focus on review the steganalysis algorithm based on steganography and steganalysis classification. This paper will review the image steganalysis techniques based on image type format classification, from image format point of view, focusing on the main and the most commonly used format JPEG, BMP, GIF and PNG.
