  • Publication number: 20170032690
    Abstract: Methods for providing drawing assistance to a user sketching an image include geometrically correcting adjusting user strokes to improve their placement and appearance. In particular, one or more guidance maps indicate where the user “should” draw lines. As a user draws a stroke, the stroke is geometrically corrected by moving the stroke toward a portion of the guidance maps corresponding to the feature of the image the user is intending to draw based feature labels. To further improve the user drawn lines, parametric adjustments are optionally made to the geometrically-corrected stroke to emphasize “correctly” drawn lines and de-emphasize “incorrectly” drawn lines.

  • Patent number: 9521233
    Abstract: A method and device for recording data of a terminal are disclosed. The method includes: setting a relation condition list for triggering recording among function modules, and setting a corresponding random probability generator for each function module; determining whether to start recording data, and whether to end the data recording operation in accordance with the relation condition list or the random probability generator, during the operation process of each function module; and sending the respective data packets obtained by recording to a data management module for storage after the data record operation of each function module is ended. By adopting the method and device, fuzzy recording can be performed on data of the terminal, and data of different function modules can be stored centrally, and a query operation is simplified.
