In line with the expansion of the Internet, the issue of information security has gained special importance. Many methods have been provided in order to establish hidden communications. In the meanwhile, steganography is one of a relatively new method. This paper introduces a new method for exchanging information by steganography on artistic websites. The main idea in this method is to hide data by changing the color of artistic websites items like tables, hyperlinks and texts. The suggested method is implemented by using the Java language.
