In this paper, the authors propose a scheme can be divided into two parts: one is about robust embedding of dual visual watermarks using DWT and Singular Value Decomposition (SVD), the other part is about tamper detection and self-recovery algorithm of color image. They stress on the latter part. Dual visual watermarks are original image watermark which is color scale image the same as original image and ownership watermark which is gray scale image, respectively. Both of them are embedded into original image using DWT-SVD to prove robustness. For recovery signal embedding, luminance signal and chrominance signal of original image were embedded into surplus chrominance space of original image using matrix transpose replacement embedding method.
