Combinatorial designs are normally used to construct visual cryptographic schemes. For such schemes two parameters are very important viz. pixel expansion and contrast. Optimizing both is a very hard problem. The schemes having optimal contrast tend to use a high pixel expansion. The focus of the paper is to construct schemes for which pixel expansion is modest and the contrast is close to optimality. Here the tool is latin squares that haven't been used earlier for this purpose.
