In this study we propose an image denoising algorithm which manipulates the information obtained from multiple images in the same environment for mobile smart phones. We also envisage a multiple images registration method for mobile smart phone cameras equipped with limited computing ability and present an effective image denoising algorithm combining and manipulating the information obtained from multiple images. We proved that the proposed algorithm has much better PSNR value than the method applying single image. We verified that the propose approach has good denoising quality and can be utilized in the feasible level speed on Android smart phones.
