Steganography is one of the techniques to hide secret information. Texture synthesis is a process to get large image from small piece of image without disturbing image texture. This paper focuses on patch-based texture synthesis. Patch-based texture synthesis process is a way to achieve steganography. This is performed by embedding message into image meanwhile not disturbing image properties and appearance. Message hiding is done by spreading secret information throughout the image. The distortion present in image is very fine sharp and person trying to interfere this cannot able to obtain required information. A secret message is stored in the form of patches which uses texture synthesis. At the receiver end, opposite action carried out to obtain original secret message and texture image. Using patch-based texture synthesis process, embedding capacity increased as well as image quality.
