Ah, the art of hiding data in plain view.  The practice of
encapsulating files into a picture is called "steganography" (a quick
google search should return many interesting links).  The most basic
limit of this practice is that the picture must be a bigger file than
the hidden one and the visual detectability of alteration to the
original photo usually depends on how close the size of the files are
to each other.

For Anyone's Info,
Andrew
