In this paper, a new multifocus image fusion method is proposed, which combines the Laplacian pyramid, wavelet decomposition and uses alpha stable distance as a selection rule. First, using Laplacian pyramid, we decomposed the multifocus images into several levels of pyramid and then applied wavelet decomposition at each level. The contribution of this work is to fuse the wavelet images at each level by using alpha stable distance as a selection rule. To get the final fused image, we reconstructed the combined image at every level of the pyramid. This protocolwas compared to other methods and showed good results.
