  • Patent number: 10621769
    Abstract: A method and system. A base photographic image of a scene is combined with N additional photographic images of the scene to form a composite image including M discrete light sources (N?2; M?N). The scene in the base image is exposed to ambient light. The scene of the base image is exposed, in each of the N additional images, to the ambient light and to at least one discrete light source to which the base image is not exposed. The M discrete light sources in the composite image include the discrete light sources to which the scene is exposed in the N additional images. The composite image includes a region surrounding each discrete light source and has an area that correlates with an intensity of light from the discrete light source surrounded by the region. The intensity of light is the intensity at the discrete light source where the light is emitted.

  • Patent number: 9910572
    Abstract: A method of graphically duplicating graphic objects through the steps of a computer: receiving a selection of at least two objects and a direction of duplication along an axis. A zero axis point, a farthest axis point for the objects based on the direction of duplication, and a proximal object is determined. A proximal offset point equivalent to a farthest point on the proximal object from the zero axis point is set. A distal object is determined from the objects based on the direction of duplication along the axis, with a starting point of the distal object being designated as a distal offset point. An offset distance equal to a distance between the distal offset point and the proximal offset point is determined. The selection of the objects is duplicated and placed immediately after the farthest axis point plus the offset distance from the farthest axis point.

  • Patent number: 9684847
    Abstract: A method for capturing three-dimensional photographic lighting of a spherical lighting device is described. Calculation of boundaries of the spherical lighting device based on lighting properties of at least one light source in a set location of the spherical lighting device is performed. A mapping of multitude points of the spherical lighting device to three-dimensional vectors of at least one camera device using a logical grid is performed. A measurement of brightness of the logical grid of the spherical lighting device is performed. The method further comprises determining brightest grid point of the logical grid of the spherical lighting device, wherein the brightest grid point of the logical grid is measured within a region brightness of the spherical lighting device. The method further comprises calculating the region of brightness of the spherical lighting device based on the determined brightest grid point of the logical grid.

  • Patent number: 9449234
    Abstract: In a method for visualizing motion of an object in an image, at least two images, including a first image and a second image, wherein each of the at least two images includes an object are received. One or more processors determine a first distance value for the object in the first image and a second distance value for the object in the second image, wherein each distance value is based on a distance between the object and an image capturing device. One or more processors compare the first distance value to the second distance value to determine a difference between the first distance value and the second distance value. One or more processors generate an indication based on the determined difference between the first distance value and the second distance value.
