This paper proposes a new image registration method using no reference image. The proposed method embeds a two dimensional tracking pattern to the Fourier magnitude domain of an image to generate a stego image, by data hiding scheme based on a log-polar mapping. Once a stego image is geometrically deformed, this method estimates rotation angle and resizing scale by correlation between the original and extracted tracking patterns, then it compensates the deformed image without using any reference image. Experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
