To avoid additive cross-talk among multiple images, they are separated from each other and even from the host image in the hiding and the extraction process by locating them independently in the Fresnel domain with computer-generated double phase-only masks. Gray images and white-ground and black-ground binary images can be hidden in the system at the same time. The hiding capacity of the system as to these three types of multiple image has also been investigated using a cascaded iterative algorithm. The security and the multiplexing parameters of the system are analyzed as well.
