                                                  Haze Remover

A software developed by Image Registration and Fusion Systems  removes haze from images, enhancing their contents. An example is
given below. The image on the left shows a hazy image and the image on the right shows the image after haze removal. An interactive
interface makes it possible to remove haze locally through a circular window. The size of the window and its location can be interactively
changed with the motion of the mouse. Haze removal is automatic when applied to an entire image. Automatic haze removal creates an
image by maximizing entropy, ensuring that maximum information is delivered to the viewer. Use this software to automatically/interactively
remove haze from your photographs. For additional information see the
Haze remover page or contact

haze-removed image with the original image.

                         Multi-focus and Multi-exposure Image Fusion

It is often not  possible to capture an image that is well exposed and well focused everywhere. Lighting across the scene can vary, making
some image areas too dark or too bright. Also, due to the 3-D structure of the scene, only parts of the scene near the focus plane  appear
sharp. To produce an image that is well exposed and well focused everywhere, a number of images at different focus levels and  exposure
levels m
ay be obtained and combined into a single well-focused and well-exposed image. The images are combined in such a way to
maximize entropy, ensuring that the created image contains more information than any other image obtained from the same set of images.
An example demonstrating creation of a well-exposed image from five images obtained at different exposures of an office scene is given

Fusion of multi-focus images by this software is demonstrated below. Image (c) is obtained by combining images (a) and (b).

Image fusion methods assume that the images to be fused are spatially aligned. Often, captured images are not aligned, especially when
they are obtained by a hand-held camera or
by different cameras. A version of this software that aligns the images before combining them
has been developed. An example of this software is given below. Plates (a) - (d) show images obtained at different exposures of an outdoor
scene. These images are slightly shifted with respect to each other due to camera motion. Plate (e) shows fusion of images (a) - (d) without
alignment and plate  (f) shows fusion of the images with alignment. For additional examples of the combined image alignment and fusion
software, visit the
Combined image registration and fusion page.

                                              Image Comparison

Often there is a need to compare two images for similarities/differences. A software developed by Image Registration and Fusion Systems
spatially aligns the images to f
acilitate determination of similarity/difference between the images. Plates (a) and (b) below show aerial
images taken from slightly different views. By aligning the images at the background, it is made possible to detect motion of objects in the
scene. Plate (c) shows alignment of images (a) and (b). Image (a) is shown in light blue while image (b) after coordinate transformation to
align with image (a) is shown in red. Viewing image (c) with red-blue stereo glasses, the 3-D structure of the scene becomes visible. Use
this software to create stereo images from your multiview images. Also, use this software to highlight scene changes occurring between the
times the images are obtained, or to combine information in multimodality images into a highly informative image. For further

                                                                                            Image/Video Capture

This software detects USB cameras attached to your Windows PC, choose the desired camera, capture a single frame or a video
ence, and display or save it. It can also read an image or a video from a file and display it. Images can be in jpg, tif png, and other
popular formats and videos can be in avi format. The software allows specifying the dimensions of the image/video to be captured and
whether the image/video should be in color or gray scale. Use this software to take pictures and videos, view pictures and videos captured
earlier, or display live video from the built-in camera or a USB camera attached to your Windows PC.
