  • Patent number: 9185286
    Abstract: An image combining method in an electronic device having a plurality of cameras. In response to a photographing signal, images successively photographed through at least a first camera are successively stored. A first image is selected from the successively photographed images which satisfies a predetermined classification reference, such as a degree of blurring, a facial expression, and/or a shooting composition. A second image is captured through a second camera; and the first and second images are then combined. The combined image may be a picture-in-picture (PIP) type combination image. The first and second cameras may be front and rear cameras of a portable terminal, or vice versa. The successive image capture and selection technique may also be applied to the second camera.
