Problem statement: Digital Watermarking have gained popularity in recent years as a means of protecting multimedia data from illegal copying and unlawful reproduction. It is mainly used for copyright protection of multimedia data. Approach: In this study an image watermarking algorithm which is blind (do not require the presence of host image for detection) and robust is proposed. Results: The proposed watermarking scheme embeds the watermark in the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) domain. The watermark is a binary logo and is embedded in the subband of the wavelet decomposition. Conclusion: This watermarking scheme is robust to several attacks like JPEG compression, rotation, Gaussian filtering, median filtering, cropping, scaling, sharpening, Gaussian noise and salt and pepper noise.
