Security systems are well-liked in several areas wherever technologies are developing day by day. Using secret writing called encryption and data hiding called Steganography information security are often achieved. A traditionally used technique in Steganography is the LSB technique. Hide info is that the art and science of hidden writing, it’s a technique of masking information in an exceedingly different style of data. Additionally, we will send text or a picture disguised by the cover image and change the components of the first to the recipient. A hidden text or image move into the cover image will defend the attacker’s original information. In this we proposed a hybrid technique to secure the images in an image. Here Steganography LSB technique is used to hide the images in an image after that used the scrambling Arnold technique to scramble the cover image and improved the security of the hidden image.
