  • 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.

  • Patent number: 8243319
    Abstract: A finished-image generating unit generates a finished image showing a result of a process performed on a target image according to various function setting items. A finished-image display unit, when the target image extends to a plurality of pages, forms the finished image in a stack, and displays the stacked finished image on a display unit with a page structure image that shows an overall page structure of the stacked finished image. A page moving unit, when one of the pages constituting the page structure image is specified via an operating unit, executes a page moving from a page currently displayed on the display unit to the specified page.

  • Patent number: 7889405
    Abstract: A finished-image generating unit generates a finished image showing a result of a process performed on a target image. A transparent-finished-image generating unit generates, when the target image extends to a plurality of pages, a transparent finished image by adjusting a transparency of a non-image portion of the finished image to a predetermined transparency. A transparent-finished-image display unit forms the transparent finished image in a stack, and displays the stacked transparent finished image on a display unit in such a manner that an image portion of the transparent finished image is seen through the non-image portion.

  • Patent number: 7773810
    Abstract: An image processing unit executes an image process on a target image based on process-setting contents, and generates a processed image. An area extracting unit compares the processed image with the target image, and extracts a partial area of a predetermined size showing a notable effect of the image process executed on the target image, as a checking area. A checking-image display unit displays the processed image corresponding to the extracted checking area on a display unit, as a checking image for checking the process-setting contents of the image process.
