How to hide files in a jpg(or any other type of picture extension)

Set up:
1. Must have a .zip or .rar compressor.
2. Willingness to learn.

1. Save the picture of choice to your desktop.

2. Make a new .rar or .zip folder on your desktop.

3. Add the files you want to hide into the .zip or .rar

4. Click start menu, run, cmd.

5. In Command Prompt type cd "desktop" with the quotation marks.

6. Now type in copy /b "filename.jpg" + foldername.rar outputfilename.jpg

( If you use .zip then: copy /b filename.jpg + outputfilename.jpg)

7. Now there should be the outputed file name with a .jpg extension(or what ever file you hidden files in) on the desktop.
( Do not close Command Prompt just yet )

8. Double click it to open the file and check it out.

9. When your done looking, and want to view the hidden files
Type: ren outputfilename.jpg outputfilename.rar or zip
Now you're done!

A quick info-fact:
With this technique of hiding files in a picture you can send this to anyone and they just have to rename the file extension to .zip or .rar.
With this technique the Al-Qaeda operatives were able to send info to others secretively.

PS:the size of the picture will increase as much as the added rar/zip

PS:this probably works not just with pictures but with all files
