SteganPEG is a lightweight software application built specifically for helping users hide sensitive data inside JPG images in only a few steps.
It sports a clean and simple interface that offers only a few configuration settings to tinker with.
The program gives you the possibility to embed photos into the working environment using the built-in browse function, so you cannot rely on “drag and drop” operations.
SteganPEG allows you to encrypt data by setting up passwords, preview the picture in the primary panel, as well as insert multiple items to be hidden in the photos.
What’s more, the utility is able to indicate how much space is occupied by the hidden files so you can calculate if there’s available space for adding more items.
The photo, which embeds the sensitive data, can be exported to JPG file format, provided that you have specified the filename and saving directory.
Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to work with this utility, even rookies can master the entire process with minimum effort.
During our testing we have noticed that SteganPEG accomplishes a task very quickly and without errors throughout the entire process. As it would be expected from such a small app, it remains light on the system resources, so it doesn’t burden computer performance, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
To sum it up, SteganPEG seems to be the right choice in case you are looking for a simple-to-use encryption application that comes packed with only a few dedicated parameters, and is suitable especially for rookies.
