A command line tool to hide and reveal information inside images (works for both PNGs and JPGs)
- Python 3
Most of the Linux and MacOS systems comes pre-installed with Python, unfortunately this is not true for Windows. But, it can be downloaded manually from (Python)
pip install imgrerite in the terminal
- On Windows
py -m imgrerite.app
- On Linux/MacOS
python3 -m imgrerite.app
But where does my resulting images get stored?
In your system’s home directory, there would be a new folder now, named Imgrerite, all the images are saved there. By reverse revealing those images, you’ll see the text you hid
And what are the limitations to this tool?
You can only enter texts for now and that too without a new line, I know it sucks!
I’ll improve this in the future, so that a whole text file can be hidden inside an image rather than manually typing the text
And well, let me tell you a secret, this does not really hide stuff, I mean anyone can use this tool to read those hidden texts, right?
I’m planning to next implement a mechanism that solves this
Okay, but why? WHY?
I was bored
