Abstract: The pixel prediction based reversible data hiding is an emerging and state-of-the-art technology for the low distortion and high capacity.In particular,for the prediction based difference expansion (DE) and histogram shift (HS) schemes,an accurate prediction can increase the payload and reduce the distortion simultaneously.This paper proposed a pixel prediction based histogram shift method in order to increase payload and reduce distortion.This method is designed based on the modified warped distance algorithm and the local gradient of an image,which can increase the prediction accuracy and furthermore improve the HS algorithm.Meanwhile,this paper gave some advice about how to avoid overflow after shifting the histogram.Experiments demonstrate that the proposed method outperforms the previous counterparts significantly in terms of both the prediction accuracy and the final embedding performance,and the tradeoff between the payload and the distortion can be run by modifying the embedding level as well.Moreover,the usage of local gradient and the local geometric similarity can improve the payload-distortion performance of reversible data hiding.

Key words: Reversible data hiding,Warped distance,Local gradient,Histogram shift
