How to Hide Any File in an Image Filethe selected file into a ZIP file. You can right-click on the file, choose Send, and then click Compressed (zipped folder).
A compressed folder will be created on the same folder where your original file is located. You can now opt to delete or transfer the original file for back up purposes.
Once you have the file on the zipped folder, it is now time to choose the image file where you want to “bury” and hide the compressed folder. Here, I will be using the image of a Joker named why_so_serious.jpg.
Place the compressed folder and the image on the same folder. In this example, I will place the files on the Desktop. If you are not familiar with the Command Prompt, I suggest that you place the files on the Desktop so that you can follow along easily.
Take note of the compressed folder’s file name and the selected image’s file name.
Open Command Prompt. You can search for CMD on the search feature of your computer. You can also use the shortcut Windows+R (for run) and type in CMD.
With the Command Prompt open, change the directory to the Desktop by typing this command into the CMD Prompt: cd desktop.
Command Prompt will now show that you are on the Desktop. Enter this command into the CMD Prompt: copy/b filename_of_image + filename_of_zipped_folder. For this example, I typed in copy/b why_so_serious.jpg + 0.The.Book.zip.
Command Prompt will let you know that process has been completed when it shows the a file has been copied.
You will now notice that the image’s file size has now increased. This is because the file is now a combination of both the compressed folder and the image.
The selected file has been successfully hidden in an image. You have the option to delete the compressed folder or transfer it to another location or drive. You can still open the image, and it will still show the Joker, as in this example.
