Recently, numerous novel algorithms have been proposed in the fields of steganography and visual cryptography with the goals of improving security, reliability, and efficiency. Steganography detection is a technique to tell whether there are secret messages hidden in images. The performance of a steganalysis system is mainly determined by the method of feature extraction and the architecture selection of the classifier. In this paper, we present a new method Visual Pixel Detection VPD for extract data from a color or a grayscale images. Because the human eye can recognize the hidden information in the image after using this detection. The experimental results show that the proposed method provides a better performance on testing images in comparison with the existing method in attacking Steghide, Outguess and F5.
