Abstract -
In this paper, a review analysis of transform based image watermarking technique has been presented. Information security is extremely significant concern for the internet technology due to ease of the duplication, distribution and manipulation of the multimedia data. The digital watermarking is a field of information hiding which hide the crucial information in the original data for protection, illegal duplication and distribution of multimedia data. Analysis has been exploring the performance efficiency of various digital image watermarking techniques that compared on the basis of outputs. In the digital watermarking the secret information are implanted into the original data for protecting the ownership rights of the multimedia data. In this field, transform based techniques has large contribution especially wavelet based techniques. This review elaborates the most important methods transform domain and focuses the merits and demerits of these techniques.
