  • Publication number: 20210160436
    Abstract: A computer system creates time lapse video of a live subject to help assess effects of skin treatments, use of cosmetics, or personal care routines over time. In one aspect, the computer system obtains a set of digital source images (e.g., from video or a series of still images) of a region of interest of a live subject (e.g., the face of the live subject or a portion thereof) captured in a first time period; normalizes the set of digital source images; obtains a first representative image that includes the region of interest by synthesizing or selecting it from the set of digital source images; and combines the first representative image with additional representative images from other time periods to form a time lapse video of the region of interest of the live subject.
