  • Patent number: 6424738
    Abstract: Disclosed is an image processing apparatus for processing an image input from an image input device such as a digital camera. Upon reception of an image of an article from the image input device, this image processing apparatus discriminates the color and size of the article, and stores pieces of data indicating the discriminated color and size in correspondence with the image. When a color or size is designated as search data, the apparatus searches an image memory for images corresponding to the designated contents and displays them in the form of a list. When an article is imaged, pieces of feature data indicating the feature of the article are added and stored with respect to the image. When feature data is designated, the image of a desired article can be immediately searched out from many images.
