Saliency is the most important part of an image. An image will have more than one salient areas. Human eye can identify the salient regions of natural scene. There are many methods for saliency detection in 2D images. Here, a model for saliency detection in 3D images is proposed. A 3D image and its depth map are given as inputs. From these two inputs a 3D image is created and its saliency map is generated as the final output. 3d saliency detection models are useful for various multimedia applications. This model can effectively identify the salient regions in 3D images and enhances those regions in the final 3D saliency map.
