Title (EN) DISPLAY OF MULTIPLE IMAGES BASED ON A TEMPORAL RELATIONSHIP AMONG THEM WITH VARIOUS OPERATIONS AVAILABLE TO A USER AS A FUNCTION OF THE IMAGE SIZE
(FR) AFFICHAGE D'IMAGES MULTIPLES PRESENTANT UNE RELATION TEMPORELLE ENTRE CELLES-CI, ET COMPORTANT DIVERSES OPERATIONS DISPONIBLES POUR UN UTILISATEUR EN FONCTION DE LA TAILLE DE L'IMAGE
Abstract:
(EN) Multiple images (102, 104, 106) are displayed on a screen (100) of a computer system (Fig. 1) to reflect a temporal relationship among them. Based on date and time when an image is obtained in relation to other displayed images, its size is set accordingly. Namely, the more recent the image, the larger its size on the screen (100). In addition, the larger the size of the image, the more processing operations, including graphical or text processing functions, are available to a user to be performed on that image.
(FR) Des images multiples (102, 104, 106) sont affichées sur un écran (100) d'un système d'ordinateur (fig. 1) pour refléter une relation temporelle entre celles-ci. La taille de l'image est fixée en fonction de la date et de l'heure à laquelle une image a été obtenue par rapport à d'autres images affichées. C'est-à-dire que plus l'image est récente, plus elle est grande à l'écran (100). En outre, plus l'image est grande, plus l'utilisateur dispose d'opérations de traitement sur cette image, dont des fonctions de traitement graphique ou de traitement de texte.
