Visible Digital watermarking is a technique that embeds copyright information perceptibly within the image to prevent illicit use of multimedia content. There are numerous applications that require user authentication to make the original image content available. In this paper the design of reversible digital image watermarking for watermarking applications is introduced. Here the image is identified based on the authentication of data. After this paper, segmentation is applied. Segmentation will divide the image into number of regions. Compression of image is performed after segmentation. The compressed image will divide into number of blocks. Now the blocks will be identified which are smoothen. After this embedding process is performed. at last an watermarked image is obtained. From results we can observe that the proposed system gives effective output.

Key Words: Digital watermarking, image segmentation, image compression, image authentication.
