  • Publication number: 20200314349
    Abstract: An image processing device includes an acquisition unit, a designation unit, a generation unit, and a notification unit. The acquisition unit is configured to acquire a luminance value from an image. The designation unit is configured to designate a partial area of the image. The generation unit is configured to generate image information displayed on a display device. The notification unit is configured to notify the display device that displays the image information of information relating to the luminance value. Moreover, the acquisition unit acquires the luminance value from the partial area, and the notification unit notifies the display device of information relating to the luminance value acquired from the partial area. The image processing device may include a memory(ies) that stores a program of instructions, and a processor(s) configured to execute the program to cause the image processing device to implement the aforementioned unit.
