  • Patent number: 10972629
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus is an image processing apparatus that performs image processing on first image information of a target first image. The image processing apparatus has a controller and a first storage device which stores second image information of a second image. The controller reads the second image information stored in the first storage device, changes a resolution of the read second image information to a first resolution which is the same as a resolution of the first image information, and combines the first image information and the second image information based on the first image information and the second image information of which resolution is changed to the first resolution.

  • Patent number: 10924635
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an image processing apparatus includes a scanner to generate image data by scanning a document and a control unit. The control is configured to set, for each pixel in the image data, a second pixel value based on a first pixel value and a difference between a first base value corresponding to a base color of the document and a second base value that is based on neighboring pixel values around the pixel. A correction table is used to obtain a corrected second pixel value for each pixel. A third pixel value for each pixel is set based on the corrected second pixel value and the difference between the first and second base values.
