In this Instructable, I will show you how to hide files inside a picture file. They are almost undetectable, and can be made very hard to get.

You will need these things:
1) A picture to hide stuff in
2) Files to be hidden
3) A file compression software (I use 7-zip, which you can get here)
4) Command Prompt

UPDATE
You can not only hide files in pictures, but music files, videos, and just about anything else.

Step 1: Compressing the Files

The first thing you will do is make a new folder on the C drive. I will call this folder "x". Inside this folder, place the files to be hidden and the picture that will hide everything. The picture that will hide everything in it cannot have any spaces in the name, so I called it "Picture".

<p>Could you commit your code on github ? </p>
<p>trust me it is not worth going into deep web to learn hacking, just find networking tutorials and learn some code in that area and then you can do some good thing with hacking skills (try to wear a white hat please)</p>
<p>do any body know a place to start learing hacking stuff even if it is in the deep web</p>
<p>why it did not work why????</p>
<p>Hey, so for anyone that is stuck, I've written a batch file that should do everything you need. </p><p>@echo off <br>color 0a <br>title Hider </p><p>echo by</p><p>echo //Mark\\<br>echo This Program Will Hide Your Files <br>echo This Will Only Work With Compressed (Zipped) Files <br>echo Enter The Full System Path Of Your Files When Prompted <br>echo If The Path Contains Spaces, Put Double Quotations (&quot;...&quot;) Around The Path <br>echo Once You Have Compressed Your Files, <br>pause <br>echo File To Be Copied <br>set /p first=%input% <br>echo Destination <br>set /p second=%input% <br>copy /b %first% %second% <br>pause</p><p>Remember: </p><p>-Save file as .bat</p><p>-Include picture type (.jpg, .png, et cetera)</p>
<p>Pretty cool! Gonna use this trick.</p>
<p>Gonna try this, will see about hiding .exe files in there.</p>
It's gonna work of course
Thanks man. It turned out great
<p>but,as i open the compressed picture,it just shows a point,nothing else.</p><p>how to do so i can get a normally showable picture?</p>
<p>Could this be &quot;stacked&quot;? like a file within a file within a file... ?</p>
This is a very useful technique. I wrote a batch file that does this in a way not-so-computer-savvy people could use. I will post the code soon.
<p>please upload that code</p>
please send me the link to download it i have gotten really close to making it or just copy the text and write it on here
hmmmm...... you could do this using the same code he used in a batch file.... but that would mean editing it every time................... could you send me the code you used??
<p>all my pix are opening in note pad help</p>
I develop <strong>Easy Hide Files</strong> allows hiding files and folders from viewing, accessing and searching completely, so that only you know that those files or folders exist. No matter how particular computer (over local network, from internet or directly) is accessed, those folders stay invisible and safe. Once you hide files/folders, Easy Hide Files will not reveal its presence in your system, and the files will be hidden until you unhide them. No one can find out if any of the files or folders is hidden.<br> <br> http://www.prasid.in/easyhidefiles/index.php
hay gays i found a new way to hide a folder behind a picture. To do this we can make use of &quot;Folder Security 1.0.2&quot;. This software is capable of hiding a folder behind .jpg and .mp3 files. this is a best software and it works perfect. <br>Download if from: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Lockdown/Prakash-Folder-Security.shtml
how can i extract the file which i stored in a video . please tell me.!!!
COMPRESS COMPRESSED FOLDER! Or in 7-Zip bump up comression ratio...
how do you extract the files
Thanks for the tutorial!&nbsp;I've always wondered how to do this ever since I saw the people on NCIS&nbsp;find files hidden in a photo. <br /> <br /> This must be why most sites have a limit of 2MB&nbsp;(like facebook)&nbsp;when you're uploading photos. People could store pirated software in a simple photo, upload it to their facebook, and share it with the world. <br /> <br /> <br />
btw what episode of NCIS was the files found in?<br>
Hmm.. I've successfully hidden a text file (compressed to .7z with 7Zip) inside the photo (jpg) but I can't figure out how to get it out. I right click the picture and go to 7 Zip but it only gives me options to add it to an archive. There's no options to unzip it.<br />
<p>The syntax should be:<br /> copy /b zipfile + oldfile.ext newfile.ext <br /> and not<br /> copy /b oldfile.ext + zipfile newfile.ext<br /> otherwise you cant get a file archive.</p> <p>where zipfile is your archived file, oldfile is the old file, and newfile.ext is the file name you want to create.<br /> Hope this helps<br /> PS Most modern freeware archiving programs won't open files without the proper extension. You need to drag the file to the shortcut of 7-Zip or the program you are using and release the mouse button.</p>
<br> HA HA! i got something to work! if someone knows this trick, you can still do it on a BAT (batch) file, and the only way to open it is to press extract on the file! bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha<br> <br> WOO! I am out of breath... lol<br>
Hey NINJA!! ^^
... this is supposed to be for the 'ible, HI
Great 'ible, this also works for some video formats (wmv, etc) and some music (mp3, etc)
yes the picture can be edited
it depends on the file type. .bmp for example cannot be edited while some others can be
Just rename change the .bmp to a .7z and it will open anyway. Also, it corrupts the bitmap<br />
If you did it right, then you should have a new picture saved in the &quot;x&quot; folder with whatever name you gave it. You can delete the origional files you wanted hidden now. find the spelling error<br /> <br />
I found it, plus a few more. Thanks.<br />
just had to come back and say thx. i was able to hide an entire secret project on my mp3 player so i didn't have to carry a flash drive..<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&amp;feature=related">the song i used</a><br />
You do know you can use an MP3 player as a flash drive right?&nbsp;Copy the files to it just like you would as a flash drive. The only difference being the files might show up strange if they're in the same folder as the music.<br /> <br /> For example:&nbsp;My iPod nano and my friend's iPod shuffle both have portable 7Zip and portable FireFox on them so we could use those programs on the computers at our old high school where we only had Limited Access accounts.<br />
i sure do, and i used to do it that way and create folders on my mp3 player and set them to hidden so they wouldn't show up when using the player, but you could still see them when they connected to a computer so i just thought i was neat to be able to hide them in a playable file. also need to get portable firefox so thx for the reminder haha<br />
Hey, hate to bother ya, But I'm doing this on Vista EXACTLY as you showed it and when I type "cd x" it gives me the message "The system cannot find the file path specified" yes, I know what that means but how do I correct it?
when CMD prompt starts up it should say something like this:<br/><br/><strong>Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1.2600</strong><br/><strong>(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.</strong><br/><br/><strong>C:\Documents and Settings\John&gt;</strong><br/><br/>this means it is in the folder &quot;John&quot; inside the folder &quot;Documents and settings&quot;<br/><br/>if your &quot;x&quot; folder is in &quot;C:\x&quot;<br/>then you have to navigate to that folder<br/>if you type:<br/><br/><strong>cd..</strong><br/><br/>it will jump up a directory<br/>example:<br/><br/><strong>Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1.2600</strong><br/><strong>(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.</strong><br/><br/><strong>C:\Documents and Settings\John&gt;cd..</strong><br/><br/><strong>C:\Documents and Settings&gt;</strong><br/><br/>it went up a directory, you need to navigate to &quot;C:\&quot; if that is when you placed your folder, so im my case i need to &quot;cd..&quot; one more time<br/><br/><strong>Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1.2600</strong><br/><strong>(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.</strong><br/><br/><strong>C:\Documents and Settings\Boys&gt;cd..</strong><br/><br/><strong>C:\Documents and Settings&gt;cd..</strong><br/><br/><strong>C:\&gt;</strong><br/><br/>now i am in the &quot;C:\&quot; directory and i can type<br/><br/><strong>cd x</strong><br/><br/>and it will find the &quot;x&quot; folder<br/><br/>if you are in a different drive that the one that you placed your folder<br/>for example CMD prompt says:<br/><br/><strong>Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1.2600</strong><br/><strong>(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.</strong><br/><br/><strong>D:\Kristy Documents&gt;</strong><br/><br/>and you need to be in the &quot;C:&quot; drive (or vice versa)<br/>you need the type:<br/><br/><strong>CHDIR /d C:</strong><br/><br/>which will change drives to &quot;C:\&quot;<br/>what it looks like in CMD:<br/><br/><strong>Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1.2600</strong><br/><strong>(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.</strong><br/><br/><strong>D:\Kristy Documents&gt;CHDIR /d C:</strong><br/><br/><strong>C:\&gt;</strong><br/><br/>now it is in the C drive and you can type:<br/><br/><strong>cd x</strong><br/><br/>and it will find the &quot;x&quot; folder<br/><br/>if none of these work type:<br/><br/><strong>CHDIR /d C:\x</strong><br/><br/>which <em><strong>could </strong></em>jump you straight to the folder<br/><br/>i know this is done in XP but it should work the same way<br/>hope this helps<br/>-J<br/>
Thanks for the great 'ible and keep up the good work.
Can you put multiple files under the same picture, or is it a 1 picure, one file kind of deal?
You can only put one file per picture, but you can zip up a bunch of files, turning them into one file.
Using the file compresser you provided? Or just the standard zip folder?
