A image file.
A good text editor (notepad will do)

What it does?

This trick will convert an image file into an not understandable file See the image for more details

How to do it?

In this article I will be showing you,how to hide images in a txt format or any other format and make the image undetectable. Are you ready - Let's begin.

first move your images to c drive.[Create a backup of your image i will not be responsible if it is lost.]
Click on start then on run then type cmd
now type cd\ [press enter]
now take note of your image name and extension lets say techsense.jpj
now under cmd - command prompt

ren techsense.jpj techsensejpj.txt

[press enter]

Ren command on command prompt is used for renaming the files.Here techsense in the file name
and jpj/txt is it's extension. I have named the out put file as techsensejpj so that while converting it back to image format it becomes easy.

Now go to the location where your image was located and try to view it.You will notice that the image has changed into a text file.

To get your image back is simple just go to ms dos prompt go to c drive an then type ren techsensejpj.txt techsense.jpj

Where to use it?

You can use it to send images to your friends computer hiding it from spying eyes or you can just keep it in your computer I bet no one will ever find out what is inside those text files unless you tell them it is an image or so.

Extra notes.

You can change the .txt extension to .mp3 or any other extension.

If you change the code or fiddle with the code which you get when the image is changed to .txt extension then the image will be lost forever.So be careful

If you want to send the image hidden as .txt file then you must attach the file itself if you give your friend the code (i.e .txt code) It will not work.
