Stegano 5 Made Easy

Arrow Image Yes, another Steg 5, but this one does it a VERY different way....

-=Stegano 5=-
Right, now I realize that there are 2 other articles at this time about Steg5, but I have
found a much better way to do it....faster, more efficient.....

So, from reading other articles and forum posts, you may have realized that your
supposed to get something from the colors....the blood of computers, a simple language
with only 2 "words."

Now, you could go through and count 'em all up to figure out what they make by taking a
while and hoping you don't miscount.... OR!!!

You could do it my way, which took me all of 30 seconds, yes, 30 seconds.....

Now, first read up on various methods that Photoshop can save images as... (don't know if
this works for gimp or not) ... some of these just save RAW data

One of these methods saves the image file in a very useful way (I'll let you figure this bit

Save it this with a text editor of your choice....

Finally, a replace "?" with "1" and replace "?" with "0" should dump out the binary and
you can simply head over to and BAM!
Easy 50 points.

definately the best article on steg 5 (much shorter, than the rest, while explaining what it needs to get at). Not too much info, and not too little. CONGRATULATIONS!

only_samuraion February 19 2007 - 21:51:09 not sure i would go with "fun"....more like "unbelievably boring"....but yeah, people probably will miss out on that now....
