Free File Camouflage
Hide files inside JPEG images

Free File Camouflage is a free portable tool designed to hide a file inside a target image.

The interface has no particular surprises. Select some confidential file, a target image, enter the name of the image you'd like to create, an optional password, and you're done. Free File Camouflage opens the source file, encrypts it using AES, and tags the data onto the end of the destination image.

The end result is what looks like a regular JPEG image, and if anyone opens it with a graphics viewer they'll see the picture it contains, exactly as before.

But, if someone opens it with Free File Camouflage, they can use the De-Camouflage function to extract, decrypt and save a copy of the hidden file.

Verdict:

While most similar tools hide files within image data, Free File Camouflage takes a far more basic route, and just adds the encrypted file to the end of the JPEG.

This doesn't affect viewing - open the picture and it'll look entirely normal - but if an expert is looking closely at the files and their structure, there's more chance they'll realise something odd is going on.

Free File Camouflage should defeat non-technical users, though, and its simple approach does have another plus: there's no restriction on the size of file you can embed in an individual picture.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
