  • Patent number: 10127639
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide an image processing device and the like that can generate a composite image in a desired focusing condition. In a smartphone 1, an edge detecting section 107 detects an edge as a feature from a plurality of input images taken with different focusing distances, and detects the intensity of the edge as a feature value. A depth estimating section 111 then estimates the depth of a target pixel, which is information representing which of the plurality of input images is in focus at the target pixel, by using the edge intensity detected by the edge detecting section 107. A depth map generating section 113 then generates a depth map based on the estimation results by the depth estimating section 111.
