  • Publication number: 20120063683
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a separating unit, a setting unit, and a determining unit. The separating unit separates an image into types of partial images other than a specific type, which is likely to be erroneously separated. The setting unit makes setting designating whether or not predetermined two types of partial images of the separated partial images are to be easily determined to be partial images of the specific type. The determining unit determines whether or not at least one of the predetermined two types of the partial images is the partial image of the specific type or not based upon the setting.
