In this work we have implemented a lossless data hiding technique based on Least Significant Bit Embedding algorithm. Any image based data hiding method using LSB embedding sacrifices at least 12.5% accuracy in the image that is used as carrier. In this work we have come out with a better approach which results in better image quality and increases the amount of hidden data.
