Recently digital image processing has wide areas of application. One of the most important applications of image processing is in image fusion. Image fusion is a technique which is used for combining relevant information from two or more images into a single image. This fused image contains more information than any of the two input images. The fused image can have complimentary spatial and spectral resolution characteristics. We can apply this method in remote sensing application as well as satellite imaging application. In this proposed work, two images are fused based on the wavelet transform using different fusion technique. The objective of the fusion technique is to fuse two images in such a way that we can get better result which contain more information. The respected results will evaluate using parameters like PSNR and MSE.
