An image fusion algorithm based on DWT is used to combine fuzzy enhanced overexposed images and underexposed images. The proposed method provides fused image containing visual salient information present in both the input images along with significant contrast enhancement. The proposed algorithm is useful for a wide range of applications such as military applications, surveillance, medical diagnosis etc. The fused image obtained from DWT fusion of fuzzy enhanced images is visually better than

Both subjective and objective assessment is performed to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm. The objective image quality measures: entropy and standard deviation, also shows that the proposed method performs better than the other method.
