  • Patent number: 9942441
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a memory, and circuitry. The circuitry acquires a plurality of images divided from original image data, the plurality of images including at least a first image data and a second image data, predicts a size of a storage-use region in the memory, the storage-use area to be used for storing the plurality of image data to be merged based on image information of the acquired first image data, secures the predicted size of the storage-use region in the memory, merges the plurality of image data in the storage-use region secured in the memory based on image information of the acquired first image data, and stores the merged plurality of image data in the storage-use region secured in the memory.

  • Patent number: 8171056
    Abstract: A data processor includes a storage unit, a decompressing module, an interface module, and a data retrieving module. The storage unit stores therein a compressed setting data file including setting data files each compressed in a compression format. The decompressing module decompresses a setting data file, in the compressed setting data file, corresponding to a model of a printer selected for printing. The interface module displays a setting screen corresponding to the setting data file decompressed by the decompressing module. The data retrieving module sets print settings based on settings specified on the setting screen.
