A steganography is an art of hiding confidential data into digital media such as image, audio, video etc. The proposed the system using steganography using reversible texture synthesis. Texture synthesis uses the concept of the patch which represents an image block of source texture where its size is user specified. A texture synthesis process resamples a smaller texture image and provides a new image with arbitrary size and shape. Instead of using an existing cover image to hide messages, the algorithm conceals the source texture image and embeds secret messages using the process of texture synthesis. This allows extracting the hidden messages and source texture from a stego synthetic texture. The approach offers some advantages. First, the scheme provides the embedding capacity that is proportional to the size of the stego texture image. Second, the reversible capability inherited from this scheme includes functionality, which allows recovery of the source texture. And third, there will be no image distortion since the size of the new texture image is user-specified
