Improving the robustness of watermark in withstanding attacks has been one of the main research objectives in digital image watermarking. In this paper we propose a novel region-adaptive watermarking technique that can provide improvements in both robustness and visual quality of the watermarks when compared to the original, non-region-adaptive, embedding technique. The proposed technique, which is derived from our previously published research finding, shows that the relative difference in
