Multi-focus image fusion using content adaptive blurring

Multi-focus image fusion has emerged as an important research area in information fusion. It aims at increasing the depth-of-field by extracting focused regions from multiple partially focused images, and merging them together to produce a composite image in which all objects are in focus. In this paper, a novel multi-focus image fusion algorithm is presented in which the task of detecting the focused regions is achieved using a Content Adaptive Blurring (CAB) algorithm. The proposed…
