Using SteganoGraphy is quite simple, to be able to encode a text in an image is summarized in the following points.

  1. Open the Shortcut of SteganoGraphy
  2. Import image from Photos
  3. Write/Insert message
  4. Protect the message with a password (optional)
  5. Click on the "Hide message" button.
  6. The generated image will be displayed at the bottom of the page.
  7. Press and hold the image to save it

Now, once you have created your image with the hidden message, it will look the same as the original, it is important that you do not compress it, or apply any filters or modifications to the modified image, as this will lose the message. If you send the image, you have to make sure that the image is sent exactly as you saved it, this way, the message will not be lost.

To decode an image follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Shortcut of SteganoGraphy
  2. Import the image from Photos
  3. Enter the password (if the message is password-protected)
  4. Tap the "Reveal Message" button.

Developer notes:

Message length limit = 1000 characters! Why? The larger the message, the larger the image should be. That said, this shortcut needs a character length limitation to ensure it works with almost any image you want to use.

No third-party update shortcut is required.
SteganoGraphy has a built-in update mechanism called Embed-a-Update. Thanks to the built-in updater, SteganoGraphy does not require any external update shortcut. The shortcut checks for updates by itself, so you will always be up to date and never miss an update.

This shortcut is Embed-a-Update compatible.
