In this paper, a novel approach is presented for multimedia information hiding using visual cryptography. The approach combines both the steganographic and cryptographic effect to improve the quality of security of the data. The technique provides three levels of security without reducing the payload and the image quality. In order to attain even better quality, an enhancement technique is proposed. The experiments done on various images and the results obtained showed the robustness of the technique.
