Abstract: The idea of this paper is to invent a new strategy in steganography to get the minimum effect on the images which is used to hide data into it. This is by dividing the original image into a number of segments, these segments is achieved according to the number of characters included into the message which is going to be hided into the original image. In this approach the message will be coded by using the coding table. After the massage has been coded, it will be hidden into the image. The new technique is starting to search segments in the image that corresponded to the coded characters, in this stage the technique is mark out the positions of each encoded character included in the original message. At last we tried to test the new technique we found that the positions of the character in image doesn't been affected, beside that the new technique is also hard to been beaked by uninterested users.
Keywords: Steganography, coding theory.
