Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR GENERATING A MULTIPLE COMPOSITE IMAGE
(FR) PROCEDES ET APPAREIL D'ELABORATION D'IMAGES COMPOSITES MULTIPLES
Abstract:
(EN) A composite image generator (112) in a first embodiment combines a prestored composite background image, a prestored composite foreground image, and a composite interior image. The composite interior image is preferably generated by the composite image generator by interlacing a prestored interior image with a captured digital image. Portions of the composite background image are deleted or hidden based on the composite interior image. Similarly, portions of the composite interior image are deleted or hidden based on the composite foreground image. A composite image generator in a second embodiment produces a lenticular novelty item (120) at a point of purchase. The composite image generator receives a theme selection and a captured digital image. Images associated with the selected theme and the captured digital image are then interlaced and/or combined to produce a final composite image. The final composite image is printed and a lenticular surface is applied.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un générateur (112) d'images composites. Dans une première exécution, on combine une image composite préstockée d'arrière plan, une image composite préstockée d'avant plan et une arrière plan et une image composite intérieure. L'image composite intérieure est de préférence produite par le générateur d'images composites en entrelaçant une image composite intérieure préstockée et une image numérique saisie. Des parties de l'image composite d'arrière plan sont supprimées ou cachées en fonction de l'image composite intérieure. De même des parties de l'image composite intérieure sont supprimées ou cachées en fonction de l'image composite d'avant plan. Dans une deuxième exécution un générateur d'images composites produit un article lenticulaire (120) sur le lieu de l'achat. Le générateur d'images composites reçoit un thème sélectionné et une image numérique saisie. Les images associées au thème sélectionné et à l'image numérique saisie sont alors entrelacées et/ou combinées pour produire une image composite finale qui est imprimée et sur laquelle on applique une surface lenticulaire.
