Image fusion, the process of combining multi-modal or multi-focus images to form a new informative image than input images. The fused image contains more information than their input images which helps remote sensing applications for image analysis efficiently. Many image fusion algorithms have been developed, but all of them introduced a term called as color distortion. The huge difference between the intensity of input images leads to the color distortion. The Intensity-Hue-Saturation fusion technique gives more access to the user to work on pixel by pixel. This method accessibility delivers the good fusion technique base to reduce the color distortion. We proposed an algorithm which solves the color distortion problem effectively and it can produce an output image as highly informative. The difference in intensity of input images reduced by injecting the intensity of the high resolution image. The proposed work performs better than existing algorithms and it is proved by statistical measures like a correlation coefficient, mean, standard deviation, ERGAS, UIQI and spectral angle mapper.
