In digital era, privacy preservation and data size reduction are important issues and many applications handle them simultaneously. In this paper, authors introduce a novel application of reversible data hiding to protect privacy sensitive region in a color image while reducing its file size. The proposed work introduces entropy as a new performance criterion along with distortion, capacity for reversible data hiding. Evaluation metric of the proposed method is a file size of watermarked and losslessly compressed image. The proposed method preserves privacy and controls rise in image entropy by reversible data hiding.
