  • Patent number: 8345970
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a red eye candidate detecting section, a red eye-gold eye separating section, a gold eye converting section, and a red eye correcting section. Herein, the red eye candidate detecting section detects a red eye candidate included in images. The red eye-gold eye separating section judges whether a red eye candidate detected by the red eye candidate detecting section is either red eye or a gold eye respectively specified in a predetermined color range. The gold eye converting section converts a color of the red eye candidate, which was judged as red eye by the red eye-gold eye separating section, into a color, which is judged as a red eye by the red eye-gold eye separating section. The red eye correcting section performs a red eye correction to a color of the red eye candidate converted by the gold eye converting section.

  • Patent number: 7769233
    Abstract: A particular-region such as red-eye region of a person in an image is detected at a high speed by a particular-region detection apparatus, as follows. At first, a region of the image satisfying detection conditions for particular region candidates is detected as a particular region candidate. Next, a face region of a first person is detected and the particular region candidate is specified as a particular region to be detected on condition that the particular region candidate is included in the detected face region. Then, face information regarding a face of the first person obtained when the face region is detected is stored. When a face region of a second person is further detected in the image or other image after storing of the face information, the face information is accessed and recalled and the face region of the second person is detected by using the face information as a face detection condition.

  • Patent number: 7415165
    Abstract: A red-eye detection device includes a red-eye candidate detection section, a red-eye pair specification section, and an isolated red-eye candidate check section. The red-eye candidate detection section detects a red-eye candidate that can be estimated to be a red-eye, by identifying a feature of the pupil that has a region displayed red from among features of an image. The red-eye pair specification section specifies the red-eye candidate as a pair of a right red-eye candidate equivalent to a right eye and a left red-eye candidate equivalent to a left eye, using information on a face region obtained from the image. The isolated red-eye candidate check section checks whether an isolated red-eye candidate, detected by the red-eye candidate detection section but not specified as the pair by the red-eye pair specification section, is a true red-eye.
