2018-12-13: Provider mandated maintenance on the search server will begin 2018-12-14 UTC-0 09:30-10:30, and may require the search to be powered off from 03:00-15:00.
Year-end planned maintenance on the full image server to replace degraded parity drive is also suggested by the Tetrarchy for 12-28 to 1-06, TBA. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

esuDesuTalk is a userscript that allows you to hide text within images.
Available: https://github.com/desudesutalk/desudesutalk/
How to use: https://github.com/desudesutalk/desudesutalk/wiki/How-to-use-this-script
Apparently it's very popular with Russians and or the Russian chansphere.
For some reason it doesn't work with 4chanX if you enter anything in your reply, so just dumping images should be fine and simply scanning the images doesn't interfere with 4chan x either. I tried posting it in the OP image but it didn't work for some reason. Here's what it would have said:

"o you read me? Testing testing 1 2 3.

One of the shortcomings is that the post doesn't automatically timestamp your post, so people could repost an image without knowing that there's a message inside it and people with the script might think the poster was using it.

I thought it might be fun for some people to use on /qa/, maybe even a way to add some flavor to certain threads.

Some other techniques previously discussed on /qa/ that dealt with hiding things in images, if you missed them, was making the thumbnails different than the actual image and discovering that png images can have their colors saved in the transparent parts.
I haven't tested this with the former but I know that desudesutalk does not preserve transparency and will make the background white; this is probably due to the programmer not considering transparency or the cryptography algorithm can't preserve transparency.

I know that a while ago some people were using this on /bant/ and others use it on /g/ but it's infrequent anywhere else."
