  • Patent number: 8635527
    Abstract: An input image is analyzed into document components. Preview data of the input image is generated based on a result of analysis. A function item that can be processed on the input image is selected based on the result of analysis. A function item is specified from among function items displayed on an operation display unit. A target area for specified function item is displayed together with the preview data on the operation display unit. A target area is specified from among target areas displayed on the operation display unit.

  • Patent number: 8487961
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a system control unit, and a display control unit. The system control unit judges whether a setting item that is newly selected on a preview image is mutually exclusive with a setting item that has already been selected on the preview image. The display control unit displays, when the setting items are mutually exclusive with each other, an area corresponding to the setting item newly selected differently from other areas. The display control unit also displays, when the area is selected, why the setting item newly selected cannot be set.

  • Patent number: 8438478
    Abstract: An analyzing unit analyzes components of input information. An area generating unit generates information on an area-representing image. A preview generating unit generates information on a preview in which the area-representing images are overlapped for each page. An operation display unit displays the information on the preview and information on a function to be performed, and accepts an instruction for setting the function. Upon accepting the instruction for the function, the preview generating unit further generates information on a preview with a processing according to the instruction performed.

  • Patent number: 8411290
    Abstract: In a user interface apparatus, when a selected position of a to-be-processed image displayed on a display screen is detected through an area detecting unit, a menu display unit displays, in response to the detection of the selected position on the to-be-processed image, a link to at least one setting item being displayed in response to the selected position, the at least one setting item corresponding to a setting available for a setting area which corresponds to the selected position, where an order of display priority of the at least one setting item is determined by a size of the setting area. A determining unit determines that the setting item is specified, and an accepting unit accepts the setting corresponding to the setting item for the to-be-processed image. A preview display unit displays a preview indicating a result of processing the to-be-processed image based on the setting item.
