Then, based on the watermark information to be hided, properly select the first pixel blocks in the front of the sequence (assume the first k blocks) and embed the watermarks successively;
STEP5: Based on the above method, use the improved generalized differential expansion algorithm to embed the watermark for any selected smooth block [A.sub.i] (0[less than or equal to]i[less than or equal to]k).
STEP6: Regarding the image blocks (original pixel block with complicated texture) not used to embed watermark information, conduct IWT and select the high-frequency detailed sub-band H[H.sub.i] to embed auxiliary information (use a lossless data compression method to embed auxiliary information for the high-frequency part).
If we embed the watermark information of any pixel pair (x, y) in the original image by the differential expansion method and the embedded watermark information is 1, then the new generated value of the pixel pair (a, b) will be:
(1) Based on the above watermark embedding algorithm, embed the watermark in the selected block.
(2) If only part of the watermark is embedded in the selected block, then divide the embedded watermarked image and calculate the smoothness value of each pixel block of the watermark image, and embed the rest of the watermark into the blocks whose smoothness values are less than the threshold value [T.sub.1].
All things considered, whether to embed watermark information by using the optimized method mainly depends on the watermark capacity to be embedded.
Considering both the visual quality and the embedding quality, this paper uses the smooth blocks to be embedded, which occupy 40% of the total sub-blocks of the image as the alternate value of [T.sub.1] to layer-dividing selects the smooth block to embed the watermark information.
