  • Publication number: 20080267536
    Abstract: Processing a collection of images includes identifying a theme for the collection of images, and performing batch processing on the collection of images. The batch processing includes applying a pre-defined group of image editing operations to the images to give the edited images a look and feel that is consistent with the identified theme.

  • Publication number: 20080270358
    Abstract: A publishing system provides a publisher interface that is dedicated to receive information about creating a publication and that is also dedicated to initiate a search of an information store. The information store contains information about different members who can contribute to various phases of publication creation. The information store is searched to identify at least one member who can contribute to the creation of the publication.

  • Publication number: 20070291184
    Abstract: A method of displaying images includes performing geometric processing and photometric processing on a plurality of image frames, thereby generating a plurality of processed image frames, projecting the plurality of processed image frames on a non-planar display surface with at least one projector, wherein the geometric processing includes applying a first plurality of meshes to the plurality of image frames, wherein the first plurality of meshes defines 2D mappings between the display surface and the at least one projector.

  • Publication number: 20070291047
    Abstract: A method includes determining a first blend map for a first projector, the first blend map including a first plurality of attenuation factors corresponding to a region of overlap between first and second images projected by the first projector and a second projector, respectively, on a display surface, applying the first blend map to a white level measurement map that includes a plurality of white level measurement values measured from a first plurality of captured images, applying a smoothing function to the white level measurement map to generate a white level target map, and determining a scale map for the first projector from the white level measurement map and the white level target map.

  • Publication number: 20070291233
    Abstract: A method includes generating a first plurality of meshes configured to map a first domain associated with a display surface having a plurality of fiducial marks to a second domain associated with a image capture device configured to capture a first image of the display surface, generating a second plurality of meshes configured to map the second domain to a third domain associated with a first projector configured to display a second image onto the display surface, and generating a first mesh configured to map the first domain to the third domain in conjunction with a second mesh using the first plurality of meshes and the second plurality of meshes.

  • Patent number: 5402245
    Abstract: A system selectively enables a printer to deposit on a sheet C, M, Y and K color dots at each of the plurality of pixel locations to produce a color image. The system comprises a memory for storing C, M, Y and K color values for each pixel in the color image and a processor for controlling selective deposition of the C, M, Y and K colors. The processor determines a gray value for each pixel location from values stored in the C, M, and Y color planes. The processor subtracts the determined gray value from the C, M, and Y values which correspond to the pixel location and then determines a relationship of the gray value to a non-linear function and in dependence upon the relationship alters the C, M and Y pixel values accordingly.
