some data (bits) from a picture (for example a bmp file) hmm heh i think
i known something about how the LSB works //i read the wikipedia :wink: but

if you can read and write bytes of the picture you can set any bit by

byte |= 1 << bit_position (zero based)

011110010 | (1 << 2) == 011110010 | 100 = 011110110

clearing a bit:

byte &= ~(1 << bit_position)

(at least this is the general idea, I might be a bit wrong :wink:
