must be using a 32bit picture to utilize the Alpha
layer, or else only the red, blue, and green layers
of a picture are editable.
resulting picture will be a BMP, PNG, or TIF file.
These are the only 3 popular file formats that

could be lost, thus JPEG files are fundamentaly
flawed for steganography.
