In this paper, a semi-blind watermarking technique of embedding the color watermark using curvelet coefficient in RGB cover image has been proposed. The technique used the concept of HVS that the human eyes are not much sensitive to blue color. So the blue color plane of the cover image is used as embedding domain. A bit planes method is also used, the most significant bit (MSB) plane of watermark image is used as embedding information. Selected scale and orientation of the curvelet…

A new method for digital image watermarking which does not require the original image for watermark detection is presented and features improved resistance to attacks on the watermark, implicit visual masking utilizing the time-frequency localization property of the wavelet transform and a robust definition for the threshold which validates the watermarks.

The experimental results show that embedding the color watermark adapted to the original image produces the most imperceptible and the most robust watermarked image under geometric and volumetric attacks.
DCT-based watermark recovering without resorting to the uncorrupted original image
A new watermarking technique to add a code to digital images is presented; the method operates in the frequency domain embedding a pseudo-random sequence of real numbers in a selected set of DCT coefficients.
A robust multiple watermarking scheme in the discrete wavelet transform domain
The experiments indicate that first level decomposition appear advantageous for two reasons: the area for watermark embedding is maximized, and the extracted watermarks are more textured with better visual quality.
Cocktail Watermarking for Digital Image Protection
From extensive experiments, results indicate that the proposed cocktail watermarking scheme is remarkably effective in resisting various attacks, including combined ones.
Hidden digital watermarks in images
The experimental results show that the proposed image authentication technique by embedding digital "watermarks" into images successfully survives image processing operations, image cropping, and the Joint Photographic Experts Group lossy compression.
Embedding image watermarks in dc components
It is argued that more robustness can be achieved if watermarks are embedded in dc components since dc components have much larger perceptual capacity than any ac components and a new embedding strategy for watermarking is proposed based on a quantitative analysis on the magnitudes of DCT components of host images.
Multipurpose watermarking based on curvelet transform
Based on curvelet transform this paper embeds one leveled watermark onto significant coefficients by quantization in individual frequency scales and can realize multifunction of content authentication and copyright protection the same time.
Curvelet Transform Based Logo Watermarking
Experimental results show that the performance of the proposed watermarking method against most Prominent attacks is good and Promising.
Rotation, scale, and translation resilient watermarking for images
It is shown that the watermark is robust to rotation, scale, and translation, and tests examining the watermarks resistance to cropping and JPEG compression.
