  • Patent number: 10410407
    Abstract: A device and method for applying a virtual lighting effect in an electronic device are provided. The electronic device includes a display, a memory configured to store a first normal map and a second normal map corresponding to a face, and a processor. The processor is configured to acquire a first image and detect a face region in the first image. Additionally, the processor is configured to determine a normal map corresponding to at least a partial region of the face region based on the first normal map and the second normal map; and display a second image, based on the determined normal map, on the display. The second image includes the first image after a virtual lighting effect is applied thereto.

  • Patent number: 9958285
    Abstract: An electronic device and method for capturing an image are disclosed. The electronic device includes an image sensor configured to capture images, a location sensor configured to detect a location of the electronic device, and a processor. The processor may execute the method, which includes capturing a first image, and detecting a first location where the first image is captured, detecting, by a processor, a second location at which a second image is to be captured and generating guidance information for travel to the second location, and when a present location is within a predefined range of the second location, automatically capturing the second image.
