Trick to Hide and send secrete text file in image
Hiding the information or file by any method is called steganography and it has lots of method and i am going to tell you most unique of them.
This is another great feature that you can use in windows 7.
You can use the text file with secrete text inside it and can send to your friend and just tell them how to open it and no one else can access.
For example you have a text file name text.txt and an image file Image.jpg
You want to send this secrete text to your friend without anyone else know what’s secrete behind this.
Place the files on the desktop.
Now on desktop you have 2 files:
-text.txt (containing secrete text)
-image.jpg for external use image file
Now open up the command Prompt (Type CMD in Run or start menu)
Now run the following command
Copy /b image.jpg+text.txt final.jpg
Now you will see a new Image is appeared on desktop with name Final.jpg
You can send this to your friend.
To open the secrete text just tell him/her to open it with Notepad and scroll to end.
Upper part will be filled with some fragment text and symbols but at the end of the txt file you they can see actual message.
