Abstract

Reversible data hiding hides data in an image such that the original image is recoverable. This paper presents a novel embedding framework with reduced distortion called skewed histogram shifting using a pair of extreme predictions. Unlike traditional prediction error histogram shifting schemes, where only one good prediction is used to generate a prediction error histogram, the proposed scheme uses a pair of extreme predictions to generate two skewed histograms. By exploiting the structure of the skewed histogram, only the pixels from the peak and the short tail are used for embedding, which decreases the distortion from the lesser number of pixels being shifted. Detailed experiments and analysis are provided using several image databases.
