A command line tool to hide and reveal information inside images (works for both PNGs and JPGs)



  • Python 3
  • Git

Most of the Linux and MacOS systems comes pre-installed with Python and Git, unfortunately this is not true for Windows. But, they can be downloaded manually from (Python) and (Git)

Just make sure they are added to PATH


In your preferred terminal (recommended to use Powershell/Windows Terminal for Windows), run

git clone

This will install Imgrerite to your system


After installation, run

  • On Linux/MacOS

cd Imgrerite
  • On Windows

cd Imgrerite

From here on, the program will guide you


But where does my resulting images get stored?

On your system, there would be a new folder/directory 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 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 hides 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

I need help in installation?/Provide Feedback/Meh! Just wanna say ‘Hi!’
