                                          Haze Removal

A software developed by Image Fusion Systems Research  removes haze from images, enhancing the details. An example is given below.
The frame on the left shows a hazy aerial image and the frame on the right shows the image after haze removal. An interactive interface
makes it possible to remove haze locally through a circular window as shown on the left. 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 as shown on the right.
Automatic haze removal is achieved by maximizing information content in the image. Use this software to remove haze from your
photographs. For additional information see the
Haze Removal page or contact

compare the 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 are obtained and fused 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 most information. An example demonstrating creation of a well-exposed and
well-focused  image from five images is given below. Top six frames are the captured images and the bottom image is the fused image.

Image fusion methods assume that the images to be fused are spatially aligned. However, captured images are often 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
fusing them has been developed. An example of this software is given below. The top three frames show images obtained at different
exposures of an outdoor scene. These images are slightly shifted with respect to each other due to camera motion. Bottom-left frame
shows fusion of the original images and bottom-right frame shows fusion of the images after they are aligned. For additional examples of
the combined image alignment and fusion software, visit the
Combined Image Registration and Fusion page.

                                      Image Registration

Often there is a need to compare two images of a scene to measure their similarities/differences. A software developed by Image Fusion
Systems Research
registers (spatially aligns) images to enable comparison of the images. The top two image below show aerial images
of a city taken from different views. The image in the bottom shows registration of the images. Use this software to create stereo images
captured from different views, highlight changes in the scene occurring between the times the images are obtained, or fuse information in
the images into a single highly  informative image. For further information about this software visit the
Image Alignment/Registration page,

                                                                                    Image/Video Capture

This software detects USB cameras attached to a Windows PC and allows choosing the desired camera, capturing a single frame or a  
sequence of frames (video), and displaying/saving  the frame(s) into a file. The software 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 computer.
