I need to detect how much the difference in an image (JPEG only) after I insert a steganography in it. I'm using F5 algorithm to insert the steganography. Now I want determine the image quality.
Can anyone explain me the error detection method using Root Mean Square (RMS)?

To find RMS error,you take the point by point difference between the original image and the filtered image, square each value, compute the mean, then take the square root. Then you have your rms error value.

You have two images, the original and a filtered one, you want to diff the two images. Square the value of each pixel after diffing to get your error values. Get a mean value of these squared errors. Root the value of the mean of squared errors.
You can use Bdiff to get the binary diff

Thanx for everyone here. Exploitedj gave me the logic and fatlad gave me the sample code. So I think both of you deserve the points. Thanx guys.
