We present a data hiding scheme for still images, in which only the magnitude of the DFT coefficients are altered to embed the hidden information bits. We begin by identifying various components of a typical data hiding scheme - like the decomposition used, signature design, self-noise suppression and signaling. The final choice of the components of the proposed data hiding scheme are well tailored by utilizing theoretical reasonings and experimental observations. Performance results show good robustness of the data hiding scheme for both JPEG and SPIHT image compression.
