Hid.Im – Hide Torrents Inside An Image File

Filed under: Online Tools — Tags: , , — Girish @ 8:29 pm

Hid.im is a new website that allows you to turn your torrents file into a regular PNG image. You can then save the image. The image though can be decoded. You must be wondering then how come it be of any use then. Think again!! The site helps you as it wont turn up in searches for those torrents (unless you provide a matching text). The site is still in its infancy stage and is quite easy to understand and also has some sample hidim’d torrents for you to get a better picture of the site’s function. Below are some of the other major features :

Features :

  1. The site is very user friendly and is absolutely free to use.
  2. It allows you to both code and decode a torrents file. The .torrents file should be less than 250 KB in size.
  3. You can also add a firefox extension of the site if you are using firefox as your web browser.
  4. It is very useful in cases where you want to post a file only for some specific people and don’t want your file to be displayed in search results.
  5. You can also contribute to the site by finding and reporting bugs , hacking on the source or creating implementation in other languages.

Steps of procedure to use this website :

  1. All you have to do is visit the website hid.im
  2. Upload your .torrents file (size less than 250 kb) on the website and then click submit.
  3. You can then get the converted version which you can save.
  4. You can decode an already converted file by clicking on the decode tab and submitting the converted file.

Editor’s view :

The site is based on a new concept and seems very promising. But still has a long way to go. It has limited features and may not attract much users. Also the restriction on the file’s size is a major drawback. But still the site can find application in some cases and to some people. Since the site is still in its infancy stage, not much can be said about it but yes full marks for the concept.
