This article gives a new method of fusing multifocal images combining the Laplacian pyramid and the wavelet decomposition using the stable distance alpha as a selection rule. We start by decomposing multifocal images into several pyramid levels, then applying the wavelet decomposition to each level. the originality of this work is to use the stable distance alpha to fuse the wavelet images at each level of the Pyramid. To obtain the final fused image, we reconstructed the combined image at each level of the pyramid. We compare our method to other existing methods in the literature and we deduce that it is almost better
