Title: IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE, IMAGING DEVICE, IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD, AND PROGRAM
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to an image processing device, an imaging device, an image processing method, and a program with which it is possible to superimpose a complementary image so as to achieve a more natural appearance. A removal area selection unit refers, from an image obtained by imaging a desired subject, to distance information that represents the distance to the subject that was acquired when the image was captured, and selects an area, as a removal area, in which a desired object to be removed is transferred. A complementary area specification unit specifies, on the basis of the distance information, a complementary area for complementing the rejection area from an area of the image in which a background of the object to be removed is, and an image superimposition processing unit superimposes a complementary image generated from the complementary area on a place of the image where the rejection area is removed. The present feature can be applied, for example, to what is called a smartphone.
