  • Patent number: 10291843
    Abstract: In order to capture entire object, it is necessary for an image capturer to move a mobile terminal in various directions and to determine whether all is captured, and therefore, the operation of the image capturer becomes complicated. An information processing apparatus having a camera function, which displays a live view image acquired via a camera on a display, determines, by analyzing the live view image, a direction of an uncaptured area that should be captured next and whether the live view image is an image suitable to OCR processing, and displays, in accordance with analysis results of the live view image, a guide to prompt a user to perform an operation so that an image corresponding to the determined direction of the uncaptured area of the object is captured next.
