"All the Hues
That Fit, We Tint"

Siberia, USA: Today, global warming. Tonight, dark, unless you count the stars. Tomorrow can be reached via time machine. Yesterday, who can remember that far back?

Color-Coded Code (Steganography)

Microsoft Paint Code, Coded Sentence Shown 2 Ways

So if you open MS Paint, you will notice that their Color Box includes 28 colors. Exclude Black and White, and you get this color-coded code, a simple alphabetic substitution code. To the right, you see a coded sentence, shown 2 ways.

This is an example of a steganographic, or plain-sight, code.

(Note: The computer used to create this image doesn't allow saving of PNGs directly from Paint. Therefore, the colors are inaccurate.)
