If you're just looking for a generic, safe executable packer, UPX is
the way to go. It's open source and quite reputable:

I came across an article that introduced the concept of using packer software to hide an executable file in another 
file such as a jpg file. I want to try this out but am worried about downloading malicious files disguised as packers. 
Can anyone recommend a legit/safe packer that I can use for my testing purpose? Thanks.
