In practical applications of three-dimensional integral imaging, the captured elemental image array (EIA) needs to be stored and delivered through the Internet. Therefore, there is an urgent need for protecting the copyright of EIA against piracy and malicious manipulation. In our work, we propose a copyright protection algorithm for EIA by combining the use of the modified hypercomplex Fourier transform (HFT) and the adaptive texturized holographic algorithm. The modified HFT can accurately extract the features from each elemental image. According to these features, we embed watermark into the visually less noticeable regions of the EIA to increase the visual perception. In addition, an adaptive texturized holographic algorithm is proposed to increase the robustness. Finally, the analytical performances are contrasted with simulation results where the imperceptibility and robustness of the proposed method are evaluated against standard attacks.
