Steganography is a Greek origin word which means "Hidden writing". Steganography word is classified into two parts: Steganos which means "Secret or covered" (where user wants to hide the secret messages) and the graphic which means "Writing". It is one of the most important techniques of data hiding. By using steganography, secret messages can be hidden in carriers such as images, audio files, text files and videos. In this paper, the authors tried to enhance the performance of the image steganography technique by modifying the secret message itself not the technique of embedding.
