The field of watermarking is of great development in recent years. There is still relevance to find high-performance methods that link robustness and discretion. In this paper, we will present a method of watermarking based on a mixed scale wavelet transformations of Faber-Schauder and the selection of high-density regions of the dominant coefficients. Simulation results demonstrate the robustness of our image watermarking procedure under various attacks and could serve for the image watermarking of identity and access cards.
