The aim of image fusion is to combine appropriate information from two or more source images into one single image such that the single image is more informative than source images. Digital negative which is one of the spatial domain image enhancement techniques,enhances white or gray detail on dark regions, especially, when black areas are dominant in size. . Considering this, a method of image fusion is proposed, specifically for multi-focus images. Each of these images are fused with digital negative of each other for getting augmentation in white or gray detail on dark regions. Act of this method is evaluated with the help of fusion appraisal parameters like RMSE, PSNR, Mean Intensity value Mutual Information etc.
