  • Publication number: 20210124932
    Abstract: The present invention is to provide a technique that is capable of easily and accurately selecting a frame of a significant moment from a moving image. In a determining step, a type of the moving image is determined. Then, in an extracting step, based on a result of determination in the determining step and information indicating multiple types of frame features, a frame having at least one of the multiple types of frame features is extracted from the moving image. Note that the multiple types of frame features correspond to multiple image-capturing scenes. Further, in a display control step, the frame extracted in the extracting step is displayed on a display device.

  • Patent number: 10776974
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes an acquisition unit to acquire layout data in which images are arranged on each page of a photo book from an image group, a division unit to divide the image group into subsets based on a number of pages of the photo book, and an image exchange unit to exchange an image arranged within the layout data. The image exchange unit exchanges a first image arranged within a page corresponding to a first subset and in which the first person is included, with a second image in which a second person, different from the first is included, when the second image is included within the first subset, and exchanges the first image with a third when no person is included, when the second image is not included within the first subset but the third image is included.

  • Publication number: 20200134840
    Abstract: In a moving image, as a motion section, a section including a plurality of consecutive frames related to a motion of a photographer of the moving image is specified. The ratio of frames in which a specific object is detected in the motion section is obtained. A motion section to be extracted as a highlight from among motion sections each specified from the moving image is determined, based on the ratio obtained for each of the motion sections.

  • Patent number: 10565469
    Abstract: An extracting unit extracts a first sub-image set that satisfies a second condition and a second sub-image set that satisfies a third condition from an image set that satisfies a first condition. A similarity calculating unit calculates a similarity between images in the first sub-image set and a similarity between images in the second sub-image set. A selecting unit selects, as a first output image set, a plurality of images including a first image included in the first sub-image set and a second image included in the second sub-image set and selects, as a second output image set, a plurality of images including a third image included in the first sub-image set, the third image whose similarity to the first image being smaller than a threshold, and a fourth image included in the third sub-image set, the fourth image whose similarity to the second image being smaller than the threshold.

  • Publication number: 20190005697
    Abstract: It is possible to easily create layout data whose main character is another person from already-created layout data. An information processing apparatus including: an acquisition unit configured to acquire layout data in which a predetermined number of images is arranged from an image group; a division unit configured to divide the image group into a plurality of subsets; and an image exchange unit configured to exchange an image in which a first person is included of the images arranged within the layout data, and the image exchange unit: exchanges, in a case where there is an image that is included in the image group and in which a second person different from the first person is included within the subset, the image in which the first person is included with the image in which the second person is included.

  • Patent number: 10074039
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a first obtaining unit to obtain a number of images in which a pair of a first person and a second person simultaneously appears, out of a plurality of images. A detection unit detects whether the pair appears in a target image group, which is one of a plurality of image groups into which the plurality of images is classified. In determining whether the pair appears in the target image group, it is determined that the pair appears in the target image group not only in a case when the target image group includes an image in which the first person and the second person simultaneously appear, but also, in a case when the target image group includes images in which the first person and the second person appear separately.

  • Publication number: 20170171570
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes: an acquisition unit configured to acquire positional relationship information regarding a positional relationship between a first predetermined object and a second predetermined object detected from at least one of captured images captured by a plurality of cameras for capturing images of a subject from a plurality of directions; a camera decision unit configured to decide on at least one camera that captures an image to be displayed from among the plurality of cameras by using the positional relationship information of the first and second predetermined objects acquired by the acquisition unit; and a transmission control unit configured to perform control so that a display-target image based on a captured image captured by the at least one camera decided by the camera decision unit is transmitted to a display device.
