Paper Abstract

It is necessary for blinding digital image watermark algorithm to extract watermark information without any extra information except the watermarked image itself. But most of the current blinding watermark algorithms have the same disadvantage: besides the watermarked image, they also need the size and other information about the original image when extracting the watermark. This paper presents an innovative blinding color image watermark algorithm based on Lab color space, which does not have the disadvantages mentioned above. This algorithm first marks the watermark region size and position through embedding some regular blocks called anchor points in image spatial domain, and then embeds the watermark into the image. In doing so, the watermark information can be easily extracted after doing cropping and scale change to the image. Experimental results show that the algorithm is particularly robust against the color adjusting and geometry transformation. This algorithm has already been used in a copyright protecting project and works very well.
