The paper presents an imperceptible and robust digital watermarking algorithm using wavelet-based contourlet transform (WBCT), The WBCT can give the anisotropy optimal representation of the edges and contours in the image by virtue of the characteristics of multi-scale framework and multi-directionality. The proposed algorithm takes advantage of the significant texture information of the image to find the embedding watermarking position. Experimental results show the validity of the proposed
