hiding a picture in a picture?


Recommended Posts

Several years ago I got an email when some sent me a picture of the Mona Lisa. With a set of instruction to download it and open the file in Microsoft word. Once inside MS word you can adjust the color level on this picture. In the email it said what to set those color levels to, and if you did it to those level the picture of the Mona Lisa changed to another picture completely different from the original. Does anyone know where i can find an example of this or at least what it is called.

As stated above, the idea is steganography, but I suspect it was just a virus scam in this instance.
