Abstract

Fusing several differently exposed images is particular useful for taking pictures in high dynamic range scenes. However, the scene changes resulted from moving objects and vibrations caused by photographers must be compensated adaptively in practical camera applications. In this paper, we propose a complete image fusion system aiming at extending the dynamic range of a picture by fusing two or more differently exposed images. The proposed global andlocal stabilization algorithms efficiently remedy the vibration problems and get a quite stable image fusion result.
