I would like to hide 1mb of data inside a 1kb png image.  So the resulting png image would be 1.1mb and would look exactly the same but would actually secretly contain 1mb of hidden data.

How can this be done?

hankknight,

When you say "hide data inside image", are you referring to steganography, where the data is actually embedded in the picture, or are you talking about just appending the information to the image file, so the picture is unchanged, but the data is contained within the file?

And, just curious, what's your intended application?

Cheers,
LHerrou

I do not want to embed data in the picture, I just want to append the information to the image file.

I could use the modified image to unsuspectingly pass sensitive informations to other members of my sleeper cell.....

Or I could access the data in the image via PHP's eval() function for ultimate script obsification.

On second thoughts maybe this question wasn't such a good idea....  We wouldn't want to have terrorists distributing propaganda disguised as porn.  I think I will ask this question to be deleted without being answered.  Before the whole site gets shut down by the FBI.

hankknight,

If I felt there were any issues with the question, I would have switched over to my Zone Advisor / Page Editor role and deleted it. Believe me, the FBI won't be worrying about anything at the level we would be talking about in this Q.
