This paper proposes a fully digital auto-focusing algorithm for restoring the image with differently out-of-focused objects, which can restore background as well as all objects. In this paper, we assume that out-of-focus blur is isotropic such as circle of confusion (COC) or two-dimensional Gaussian blur. Therefore, the proposed algorithm can segment and estimate the point spread function (PSF) by using the size of ramp in the one-dimensional step response. The proposed algorithm can be developed by object-based image segmentation and restoration algorithm. Experimental results show that the proposed object-based image restoration algorithm can efficiently remove the space-variant out of focus blur from the image with multiple blurred objects.
