Title: AUTOMATIC ISOLATION AND SELECTION OF SCREENSHOTS FROM AN ELECTRONIC CONTENT REPOSITORY
Abstract:
Automatic isolation of screenshots from other captured content items stored in an electronic content repository is provided. When a screen capture is performed on an electronic device, such as a smartphone, screen resolution information for the capturing device is stored with the captured content item (e.g., screenshot). When a user subsequently desires to recall a given stored captured screenshot, the resolution associated with each stored content item may be used for isolating screenshots from other stored content items like photographs, text items, clip art, and the like by comparing the resolutions of any of the stored content items with a screen resolution of the user's device or with known screen resolutions of various devices that may be used for capturing screen images.
