How to hide a file inside an Image

In this article, I am going to show you how you can hide any file inside or behind an image. Hiding a file inside an image means that your files will be merged with the image and if anyone clicks on image he/she will only see the image and not the hidden files. And if you want to see the hidden files you will have to open the image in different way.

This is a very simple, easy and a perfect way to hide your files from other because only you will know that there s a file behind the image, the other users will only see the image.

Tips before your Start:

  • Copy the files to Desktop, so that you don't have any problem while typing the address of files.
  • Create a zip or rar (using WinRar) file of the folder which you want to hide.
  • Rename files to simple name without any space or special signs.
  • Make sure you have access to command prompt.


  1. Open Command prompt. (Right Click on Bottom Left corner and Select 'Command Prompt')
  2. Once you have copied your Image file and rar/zip file to desktop, type the following command an hit Enter.

    cd desktop
  3. Again type the command given below, replace the names and hit Enter.

    copy /b ImageName.jpg + OutputImageName.jpg
  4. Replace:
    ImageName.jpg with the name of your Image with the name of your file &
    OutputImageName.jpg with the name you want to give to your output file.
