Spy Pix is an essential tool for any spy who wants to hide and send secret messages in plain view.
- Maybe you're an international spy who needs to send a covert message to a fellow operative.
- Or you've just infiltrated enemy headquarters and need to transmit top secret plans.
- Or perhaps you have an embarrassing photo of your friend that you want to hide in plain view.
Spy Pix uses steganography, which comes from the Greek words steganos ("covered") and graptos ("writing"), to hide one image inside of another decoy image. To a casual viewer, only the decoy image is seen. However, for a seasoned spy, the image can be decoded with Spy Pix to reveal the hidden message.
- First, select an image to hide from your photo album, or capture a new image using the camera. This is your secret message.
- Then, select an image to use as the decoy. This is the image that others will see. Bright images with a lot of detail work best.
- Blend the two images by moving the slider. Find a setting where the hidden image is no longer visible. A setting of 4 or 5 is usually ideal. If the setting is too high, the quality of the hidden image will be poor when it is decoded.
- Finally, mail the Spy Pix image to your fellow spies.
- Ability to select hidden and decoy images from your photo album
- Support for the built-in camera
