A new multi-focus image fusion method using spatial frequency (SF) and morphological operators is proposed. Firstly, the focus regions are detected using SF criteria. Then the morphological operators are used to smooth the regions. Finally the fused image is constructed by cutting and pasting the focused regions of the source images. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm performs well for multi-focus image fusion.
