We propose in this paper a novel method for embedding multimedia data (including audio, image, video, or text; compressed or non-compressed) into a host image. The classical LSB concept is adopted, but with the number of LSBs adapting to pixels of different graylevels. A piecewise mapping function according to human visual sensitivity of contrast is used so that adaptivity can be achieved without extra bits for overhead. The leading information for data decoding is few, no more than 3 bytes. Experiments show that a large amount of bit streams (nearly 30%-45% of the host image) can be embedded without sever degradation of the image quality (33-40 dB, depending on the volume of embedded bits)
