It can produce images with higher quality than single-scale exposure fusion, but has a risk of producing halo artifacts and cannot preserve details in brightest or darkest regions well in the fused image. In this paper, an edge-preserving smoothing pyramid is introduced for the multi-scale exposure fusion. Benefiting from the edge-preserving property of the filter used in the algorithm, the details in the brightest/darkest regions are preserved well and no halo artifacts are produced in the fused image. The complexity of the proposed edge-preserving smoothing pyramid could be an issue. A hybrid smoothing pyramid is proposed to obtain a good trade-off between the complexity of algorithm and the quality of fused images. The experimental results prove that the proposed algorithms produce better fused images than the state-of-the-art algorithms both qualitatively and quantitatively.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/142108||ISSN:||1047-3203||DOI:||10.1016/j.jvcir.2018.03.020||Rights:||© 2018 Elsevier Inc.
