In this paper, the authors present a new reversible data hiding scheme that utilizes the wavelet transform and better exploits the large wavelet coefficient variance to achieve high capacity and imperceptible embedding. Their scheme differs from those of previous studies in that the wavelet coefficients histogram rather than the gray-level histogram is manipulated. In addition, they design intelligent histogram-shifting rules to avoid the decimal problem in grayscale pixel values after recovery process to achieve reversibility.
