In this chapter, a new frequency domain transformation based digital watermarking technique has been introduced. The proposed technique adopts logarithmic transformation in order to embed the watermark image into the host image. The algorithm is subjected for various security attacks and compared with other frequently available digital watermarking schemes. The results obtained from the proposed algorithm are more satisfied compared to the existing systems.
