Data embedding procedure
• Step1: Divide the host image into k non-overlapped blocks {X1, ... ,Xk}
• Step2: The overflow/underflow location map LM is defined in this
step. (Location map construction)
• embed the data bits into the host image
• if LM(i)= 1, the overflow/underflow would occur and we do nothing
• if LM(i)= 0, and Xn-1 – X2 >= T, we do nothing
• if LM(i)= 0, and Xn-1 – X2 < T, will be shifted or expanded to carry data

• Take 2 × 2 sized blocks as an example
• the histogram of PEmax for the Lena image that capacity about
15,000 bits by PVO-based predictor method
• the bin with PEmax = 1 is usually the histogram peak
Experimental results
• the performance on PSNR is better for a larger block size.
• larger sized blocks provide lower maximum EC.

Conclusion
• based on ordering the pixel values in image block, an effective
predictor is proposed for PEE.
• the flat blocks are priory selected to embed data, which is helpful to
improve the embedding performance.
• This method can achieve a higher PSNR under the same EC.
