i=imread('golf.jpg'); imshow(i); j=rgb2gray(i); imshow(j); n=imread('copy.jpg'); l=imresize(n,0.5); m=rgb2gray(l); imshow(m); [r,c]=size(j); startrow=1; startcol=1; j(startrow:startrow+size(m,1)-1,startcol:startcol+size(m,2)-1) = m; imshow(j); i used this code for watermarking a grayscale image and i can embed the watermark anywhere by replacing the values but it doesnot work for color images how can i watermark a color image?

You can do that same thing in every color channel.
% Extract the individual red, green, and blue color channels.
redChannel = rgbImage(:, :, 1);
greenChannel = rgbImage(:, :, 2);
blueChannel = rgbImage(:, :, 3);
% Now put in watermark, then recombine
newRGBImage = cat(3,watermarkedRed, watermarkedGreen, watermarkedBlue);

But you didn't answer my two questions. And I'd have to research it just like you would, but since it's your project, not mine, and it will probably take more than about 5 minutes, I can't afford to donate that much time to you. Sorry. I'm sure you'd do just as good a job of delving into the intricate details as I could.
