Pixload : Image Payload Creating/Injecting Tools

Pixload is a set of tools for creating/injecting payload into images. Useful references for better understanding of pixload and its use-cases:

If you want to encode a payload in such a way that the resulting binary blob is both valid x86 shellcode and a valid image file, I recommend you to look here and here.
