How to Hide Your Files in an Image

Today I am going to introduce you an exciting trick that how hide your files in an image file. So if anyone opens the image, it would be like an ordinary image but in fact your files are hidden inside it. What you need is a JPG or JPEG image and WinRar program. Let start:

1. Suppose you have a JPEG image with name Windows and you want to hide two files App.exe and Text in it. 


First of all add the files (App and Text) to Winrar archive, and make a .rar or .zip file. I named it Text.

3. Add the Text.rar file and your image in a same directory. For this tutorial, I have placed my image and zip file in Image directory in my system D: drive.

4. Open Command prompt by typing cmd in the Run and navigate to the Image folder


D:\>cd image

5. Copy the Text.rar in Windows.jpeg image by typing

D:\Image>copy /b windows.jpg+text.rar windows.jpg

And exit from the Command prompt.

6. Open Image directory in Windows and delete the Text.rar file. Now your image is ready. After that anyone tries to viewing the image, it looks like a normal JPEG file and it is even acts as a JPEG file.

7. If you need to view or extract the hidden files inside the image, simply change its extension to .rar or right-click on it and from the pop down menu, select Open with WinRar
