Data security is always the most important concern for everyone. In this paper, we are going to study the Watermarking Techniques, Performance Evaluation Metrics associated with watermarking. Watermarking is not new to anyone, but this method is always the most talked about. Digital watermarking has become an active and important area of research, and development and knowledge of watermarking techniques are being deemed essential to help in getting rid of some of the challenges faced by the rapid propagation of digital content.
