Abstract

This paper proposes a high performance reversible watermarking (RW) scheme based on a novel compensation strategy. RW embeds data into a host image by modifying its pixel values slightly. It is found that certain modified pixels can be compensated to their original values during the proposed embedding procedure. The compensation effect in the RW scheme can improve the marked image quality significantly. By incorporating the pixel selection method, a higher quality image is obtained, which is verified by extensive experiments.
