We propose two methods of digital watermark for image signals based on the wavelet transform. We classify wavelet coefficients as insignificant or significant by using zerotree which is defined in the embedded zerotree wavelet (EZW) algorithm. In the first method, information data are embedded as a watermark in the location of insignificant coefficients. In the second method, information data can be embedded by thresholding and modifying significant coefficients at the coarser scales in perceptually important spectral components of image signals. Information data are detected by using the position of zerotree's root and the threshold value after the wavelet decomposition of an image in which data hide. Experimental results show the proposed method gives the watermarked image of better quality and is robust against JPEG compression
