Abstract

This paper introduces novel hiding techniques to counter the detection of image manipulations through forensic analyses. The presented techniques allow to resize and rotate (parts of) bitmap images without leaving a periodic pattern in the local linear predictor coefficients, which has been exploited by prior art to detect traces of manipulation. A quantitative evaluation on a batch of test images proves the proposed method’s efficacy, while controlling for key parameters and for the retained image quality compared to conventional linear interpolation.
