The recent progress in the digital multimedia technologies has offered many facilities in the transmission, reproduction and manipulation of data. However, this advance has brought the problem such as copyright protection for content providers. Watermarking is one of the proposed solutions for copyright protection of multimedia. Most of the content provider use Photoshop to create a watermark photo, but Photoshop involve many procedures to complete a watermarked image. In addition, watermark image using Photoshop easily destroy by attacker where attacker can modifies the image to remove the watermark from the image. Hence, it has become a tough task to protect copyright of an individual’s creation. Thus, i-Mark is developed to solve the problem to protect the watermarked image. An invisible watermark embeds an imperceptible signal into data such as image,which indicates whether or not the content is copyrighted. By using i-Mark, invisible watermarking was provided where steganography method was implemented for users to encrypt message into an image. Hence, the image is protected from been easily modifies or copy by others. Meanwhile, i-Mark allow user to store their invisible watermarked image in database and can be view later. In addition, i-Mark also can made a visible watermark where user can adding text on the cover of image more convenient than Photoshop. In conclusion, i-Mark provides users to watermark their image either visible watermark or invisible watermark. Hence, throughout the project, user may use the system user friendly compare to Photoshop.
