Abstract

Due to the limited depth-of-field of optical lenses, it is difficult to get an image with all objects in focus. One way to overcome this problem is to take several images with different focus points and combine them into a single composite which contains all the regions full focused. This paper describesa pixel-clarity-based multifocus image fusion algorithm. The characteristic of this approach is that the pixels of the fused image are selected from the clearest pixels in the input images according to pixel clarity criteria. For each pixel in the source images, the pixel clarity is calculated. The fusion procedure is performed by a selection mode according to the magnitude of pixel clarity. Consistency verification is performed on the selected pixels. Experiments show that the proposed algorithm works well in multifocus image fusion.
