  • Publication number: 20220309035
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a file processing device, a file processing method, and a program that enable association of, for example, an image stored in a file with external data outside the file. A file control unit generates a high efficiency image file format (HEIF) file storing relationship information related to association between an image and specification information. The relationship information includes the specification information that is before being assigned to external data and specifies the external data that is outside the HEIF file and is to be associated with the image stored in the HEIF file. Furthermore, the file control unit writes the specification information stored in the HEIF file into the file storing the external data. The present technology can be applied to, for example, a case where a HEIF file is generated and an image stored in the HEIF file is associated with external data later, and the like.

  • Publication number: 20220253476
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a file processing device, a file processing method, and a program that enable association of, for example, an image stored in a file with external data outside the file. A file control unit generates a high efficiency image file format (HEIF) file in which a reserved area is secured that is used to store relationship information related to association of an image stored in the HEIF file with specification information specifying external data that is outside the HEIF file and is to be associated with the image. Furthermore, the file control unit writes the relationship information into the HEIF file by using the reserved area. The present technology can be applied to, for example, a case where a HEIF file is generated and an image stored in the HEIF file is associated with external data later, and the like.
