As multimedia data and their applications are rapidly distributed on the Web, the research on watermark insertion and integrity assurance vigorously increases. In this paper, Discrete Wavelet Transformation dissolves an original image into the three level of low, middle, and high bandwidths. Human Visual System with the significant coefficients extracted from the middle obtains enhanced image quality and robustness using watermark insertion. Experimental results show that various attacks cannot destroy pre-inserted watermark and recovered image is of good quality by measuring PSNR.
