Title
(EN) MODIFICATION OF POST-VIEWING PARAMETERS FOR DIGITAL IMAGES USING IMAGE REGION OR FEATURE INFORMATION
(FR) MODIFICATION DE PARAMÈTRES DE POST-VISUALISATION POUR DES IMAGES NUMÉRIQUES UTILISANT DES INFORMATIONS DE CARACTÉRISTIQUES OU DE RÉGION D'IMAGE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of modifying the viewing parameters of digital images using image feature detection for achieving desired parameters based on one or more sub-groups of pixels that correspond to one or more selected image features such as a face, body, pets, or a background region or a foreground region. Such methods may be used for animating still images, automating and streamlining application such as the creation of slide shows and screen savers of images containing selected image features. Two or more features such as a foreground region and a background region may be separated and independently processed.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de modification des paramètres de visualisation d'images numériques utilisant une détection de caractéristiques d'image pour obtenir des paramètres souhaités sur la base d'un ou plusieurs sous-groupes de pixels qui correspondent à une ou plusieurs caractéristiques d'image sélectionnées telles qu'un visage, un corps, des animaux de compagnie ou une région d'arrière-plan ou une région d'avant-plan. Ces procédés peuvent être utilisés pour animer des images fixes, automatiser et rationaliser une application telle que la création de diaporamas et d'économiseurs d'écran d'images contenant des caractéristiques d'image sélectionnées. Deux ou plus de deux telles qu'une région d'avant-plan et une région d'arrière-plan peuvent être séparées et traitées indépendamment.
