Image thumbnail is used by many state-of-the-art consumer electronic products, such as digital camera, smart phone, and camcorder. Image thumbnail, which is a smaller image version of the original image, helps the user to inspect the general objects’ composition contained in the acquired image. However, it is difficult to embed blur information inside the thumbnail, which will improve significantly the user’s satisfaction in taking pictures. Therefore, in this paper, a new method to embed blur information inside the thumbnail is proposed. This method uses two small images, which are the directly down-sampled image, and the smoothed version of it. This method is simple to be implemented and its sensitivity towards blur and noise can be adjusted.
