This paper proposes a novel blind image adaptive watermarking scheme in Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) domain for copyright protection or robust tagging applications. Watermarking scheme effectively utilizes the contrast sensitivity model of Human Visual System (HVS) to embed the watermark adaptively without degradation of the original image. Watermark can be extracted without referring to the original image. Simulation results show the robustness of the proposed algorithm against various attacks.
