A novel distortionless image data hiding algorithm based on integer wavelet transform that can invert the stego-image into the original image without any distortion after the hidden data are extracted is proposed. This algorithm hides data into one (or more) middle bit-plane(s) of the integer wavelet transform coefficients in the middle and high frequency subbands. It can embed much more data compared with the existing distortionless data hiding techniques and satisfy the imperceptibility requirement. The image histogram modification is used to prevent greyscales from possible overflowing. Experimental results have demonstrated the validity of the algorithm.
