  • Patent number: 10440347
    Abstract: Depth information can be used to assist with image processing functionality, such as to generate modified image data including foreground image data and background image data having different amounts of blur. In at least some embodiments, depth information obtained from first image data associated with a first sensor and second image data associated with a second sensor, for example, can be used to determine the foreground object and background object(s) for an image or frame of video. The foreground object then can be located in later frames of video or subsequent images. Small offsets of the foreground object can be determined, and the offset accounted for by adjusting the subsequent frames or images and merging the adjusted subsequent frames or images. Such an approach provides modified image data including a foreground object having a first amount of blur (e.g., a lesser amount of blur) and/or background object(s) having a second amount of blur (e.g.
