What I meant with hide is that, since it uses the LSBs, you can pick
any image, and "find data" in them, so it makes it a little bit harder
to know where you actually have data, and if you really do.
in the document I mentioned (Attacks on Steganographic Systems by
Andreas Pfitzmann - which you can find here:
there is a very good example especially about using the LSB when trying
to hide data.
What it says about the LSB thing is, that it's a "myth that least
significant bits are completely random and therefore might be
replaced". Take a look at the windmill image in chapter 3.3 ;-)
I advice you to take a look at that document anyway, which was *the*
deathblow for steganography in late 90s. It also covers many other stego
techniques, not only the LSB thing. It is a good starting point if you
want to get deeper into that topic.
But please, don't be discouraged by my humble opinion. Your project is
nonetheless interesting and a good thing to learn. And there may be
other findings about steganography around that I missed.
