  • Patent number: 6281983
    Abstract: In a mode of continuously forming different images, such as a serial page copy mode and an enlargement serial copy mode, which of the images are to be formed, and how they are to be formed is previewed prior to the start of a copy operation. At an operation unit an operator sets a selected mode, for example, the serial page copy mode, by sequentially depressing a preview key and an image reading key to supply image data to a preview processing unit which displays the output image on a CRT prior to printing. The output images may be displayed in the order to be copied. The output images may also be collectively displayed on the same screen, or the continuous display during preview may be temporarily interrupted or resumed at a desired timing.

  • Patent number: 6236464
    Abstract: An image forming system which freely combines functions of a plurality of devices connected on a network in accordance with necessity, and a control system for the system. Each of the plurality of devices stores information indicating functions which can be provided by the device in advance. A functional unit which serves as a supervisor collects these stored information and analyzes a combination of functions to perform operation designated by a user, based on the collected information. Then the supervisor combines the functions based on the result of analysis and performs the desired processing operation by the combination of functions.

  • Patent number: 6222545
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus capable of displaying a preview image which has close resemblance to an original image or an edited image automatically applies image processes, such as magnification/compression, rotation, and displacement, to the preview image on the basis of the size of an image and the size of a display screen. Image size information and a reference position mark are displayed after being synthesized. A preview image is thus displayed which may easily be checked by an operator.

  • Patent number: 6198553
    Abstract: An image processor matches a hue of an output image with a hue of a preview image. The image processor generates preview image data to confirm on a display, an output color image generated by an image forming unit. The image processor incudes an input unit which inputs from the image forming unit density data representative of the output color image, the density data depending on the output characteristics of the image forming unit. A conversion unit converts the input density data into luminance data in a predetermined color space, and a color correction unit corrects color of the luminance data in accordance with the display characteristics and observation conditions of the display. The preview image data is generated dependent on the type of display and color temperature of the display.

  • Patent number: 6041265
    Abstract: An operational control device of an image processing apparatus displays set color-balance settings on the corresponding keys with the corresponding figures and bar graphs. It also displays the title of a color-balance setting, as required. This facilitates the confirmation of set processing conditions in storing plural processing conditions for image processing, and also facilitates the selection of stored processing conditions to read. When a magnification is specified in the XY zoom mode, the key indicating that the mode has been specified is displayed. Pressing this key displays the XY zoom setting screen again. This facilitates the confirmation and change of set processing conditions.

  • Patent number: 6031631
    Abstract: One of a plurality of image processing apparatus connected to an image processing system freely sets image forming conditions, such as recording paper size and enlargement/reduction magnification ratio, with regard to some or all of the other image processing apparatus, subsequently reads the image of an original by means of a reader, outputs image data indicative of the image read and transmits this image data to the other image processing apparatus. The image processing apparatus that has read the image of the original and the image processing apparatus that has received the image data output copies of the image of the original on the basis of the image forming conditions that have been set. Accordingly, it is possible to provide an image processing method and system in which a plurality of image processing apparatus are connected and identical images are outputted simultaneously from each of the apparatus connected.
