v Currently, it is written in Java, and supports only 24 bpp images.


For GUI:

java -jar < path >/openstego.jar

For command line interface:

java -jar < path >/openstego.jar -embed [options] < data_file > < img_file > OR java -jar < path >/openstego.jar -extract [options] < img_file > < output_folder >

For '-embed' command, OpenStego will embed the data into the given < img_file > and save the file as PNG after appending '_out' to the file name.

[options] can be specified as '--name=value' pairs. Supported options are:

the image for embedding data. This value can be
increased at the expense of image quality, in

used on the data or not (Default = true)
(Only applicable for '-embed' command)
