览图,这一点与第l实施例不同。 FIG view, different embodiments of this embodiment and the first l.

因此,第2实施例中,在记录装置23中存储模板目标值表,该模板目标值表 Thus, in the second embodiment, the recording apparatus 23 in the target value table stored template, the target template table

对多种模板记述场景目标值,而场景目标值是应分别插入于模板的图像插入区域的场景的特征量的目标值。 Variety of templates described in target scene, and the scene is to be inserted into the target feature amount scene image insertion area of ​​the template target values.

图10是表示模板目标值表TT1的例子的图。 FIG 10 is a table showing an example of a target template TT1 FIG. 如图10所示,模板目标值表TT1 记述T1, T2等的模板种类、关于各模板中包含的图像插入区域la, 1-b, 1-c等的场景目标值。 10, the target template is described in Table TT1 T1, T2, etc. type template, each template on the image contained in the insertion region la, 1-b, 1-c and other target scene. 例如,模板T1有3个图像插入区域1-a, 1-b, 1-c,各图像插入区域的场景目标值分别为(100, 10, 10)、 (10, 10, 100)、 (10, 100, 10)。 For example, there is the template T1 1-a, 1-b, 1-c, the respective image insertion areas of the scene image insertion area Target 3 respectively (100, 10, 10), (10, 10, 100), (10 , 100, 10). 场景的特征量的目标值通过对经摄影作为目标的场景取得的图像计算R, G, B各种颜色的图像的平均值而求出。 Scene feature quantity target value as a target scene of photography by the acquired image calculating R, G, B colors of the average of the image being determined.

第2实施例中,作为事件对应模板,指定模板l,多个图像数据分类为具有如图5所示的特征量的平均值的3个图像组A, B, C,进行说明如后。 In the second embodiment, as an event corresponding to the template, the template designated L, the plurality of image data having an amount of characteristics are classified as shown in FIG. 5 A three image group average, B, C, as will be described.

影集编辑PC1在将图像数据分类为每个场景的图像组后,显示编辑画面30。 Album editing PC1 after the image data classified into the image groups for each scene, the editing screen display 30. 此时, 一览图显示区31在初始画面中为空白栏,模板显示区33显示作为事件对应模板的模板T1。 In this case, a list display region 31 of FIG is blank, the template shown in the initial screen display area 33 as a template T1 corresponding to the event template. 并且,操作人员指定模板显示区33显示的模板T1的所希望的图像插入区域后,影集编辑PC1参照模板目标值表TT1的指定的图像插入区域的场景目标值,计算该场景目标值与全部的图像组A, B, C的场景特征量的平均值在特征量(r, g, b)的3维空间的距离,选择计算的距离最小的图像组。 Further, the operator designates the template display region 33 after a desired image insertion area of ​​the template T1 and displayed album editing PC1 reference template specified target table TT1 image insertion area of ​​the target scene, calculating a target value of all of the scene scene feature quantity average value of the image group a, B, C in three-dimensional space from feature amounts (r, g, b) selecting the smallest distance image group calculated.

这里,指定1-a为图像插入区域。 Here, 1-a is specified image insertion area. 如图5所示,图像组A的平均值为(85, 20, 20)、图像组B的平均值(16, 98, 20)、图像组C的平均值为(12, 20, 95)。 5, the average of the image A is the group (85, 20, 20), the average value of the image group B (16, 98, 20), C is the average of the image group (12, 20, 95). 因此,特征量的距离最小的图像组为图像组A。 Thus, the smallest feature amount distance image group to the image group A. 因此,影集编辑PC1指定1-a为图像插入区域后,生成分类为图像组A的图像数据的一览图,显示在编辑画面30的一览图显示区31上。 Thus, the album editing PC1 1-a is specified image insertion region, generating a list of classified as group A of FIG image data of the image displayed on the editing screen area 31 displays a list 30 of FIG. 另一方面,指定其他图像挿入区域时,影集编辑PC1与上述同样,参照模板目标值表TT1的指定的图像插入区域的场景目标值,计算该场景目标值与全部图像组A, B, C的场景特征量的平均值在特征量(r, g, b)的3维空间的距离,求出计算的距离最小的图像组,生成分类为求出的图像组的图像数据的一览图并显示。 On the other hand, when the insertion region specified other image, album editing PC1 as described above, with reference to the specified target value table TT1 template image insertion area of ​​the target scene, the scene is calculated target value and the entire image group A, B, C of scene feature quantity average value of three-dimensional space at a distance of feature quantity (r, g, b), the image group determined the minimum distance calculation to generate a list of classified map obtained image group of the image data and display. 例如, 指定图像插入区域1-b时,生成分类为图像组C的图像数据的一览图并显示,指定图像插入区域1-c时,生成分类为图像组B的图像数据的一览图并显示。 For example, the specified image insertion area 1-b, to generate a list of FIG classified as image data of an image group C and displayed, specified image insertion area 1-c, generate a classification is a list showing an image group B image data and display.

影集编辑PC1选择图像组后,使用关于选择的图像组的场景的特征量的平均值变更模板目标值表TT1中包含的图像插入区域的场景目标值。 After selecting the album editing PC1 image group, using the average value of the feature amount concerning the scene image group selected by changing the image insertion area of ​​the template contained in the target table TT1 target scene. 即,关于图像插入区域1-a,在场景目标值(100, 10, 10)上加上图像组A的平均值(85, 20, 20)并除以2而变更场景目标值为(93, 15, 15)。 That is, the image insertion area 1-a, the target value in a scene (100, 10, 10) plus the average of the image group A (85, 20, 20) and dividing by 2 the scene is changed target value (93, 15, 15). 同样,指定图像插入区域1-b、选择图像组C时,在图像插入区域1-b的目标值(10, 10, 100)上加上图像组C的平均值(12, 20, 95)并除以2而变更场景目标值为(11, 15, 93)。 Also, the specified image insertion area 1-b, an image is selected in group C, in the target image (10, 10, 100) into the area 1-b on the average of the image plus group C (12, 20, 95) and divided by 2 to change the scene target value (11, 15, 93). 指定图像插入区域1-c、选择图像组B时,在图像插入区域1-c的场景目标值(10, 100, 10)上加上图像组B的平均值(16, 98, 20)并除以2而变更场景目标值为(13, 99, 15)。 Plus the average (16, 98, 20) of the image group designated image insertion regions B 1-c, when the image group B selected, in the image insertion area 1-c target scene (10, 100, 10) and on the other 2 is changed to the target value of the scene (13, 99, 15).

接着,说明第2实施例中进行的处理。 Next, the processing performed by the second embodiment. 由于第2实施例中进行的处理仅在编辑画面显示处理方面与第1实施例不同,因此仅说明编辑画面的显示处理。 Since the processing according to the second embodiment only in the process show different aspects of the first embodiment in the edit screen, edit screen display process description only. 图11是表示第2实施例中进行的编辑画面的显示处理的流程图。 FIG 11 is a flowchart showing the processing performed by the editing screen in the second embodiment. 这里,将模板Tl指定为事件对应模板,将该指令输入到影集编辑PC1中。 Here, the template Tl template corresponding to the specified event, the command is input to the album editing PC1.

首先,影集编辑PC1对多个图像数据计算场景特征量(步骤S21),对应特征量将多个图像数据分类为每个场景的多个图像组,并生成多个图像组(步骤S22)。 First, the album editing PC1 computing scene feature quantity of a plurality of image data (step S21), the feature amounts corresponding to the plurality of image data classified into a plurality of image groups of each scene, and generating a plurality of image groups (step S22). 接着,生成显示了一览图显示区31为空白栏、模板显示区33是事件对应模板的模板T1的初始编辑画面(步骤S23),对其进行显示(步骤S24)。 Next, the list of FIG generating a display is blank display area 31, the template display region 33 corresponding to the template T1 is incident initial template editing screen (step S23), displays it (step S24).

接着,开始监视是否指定了模板T1的图像插入区域(步骤S25),步骤S25为肯定时,计算记录装置23中记录的模板目标值表TT1的指定的图像插入区域的场景目标值与全部的图像组A, B, C的场景特征量平均值在特征量(r, g, b)的3 维空间的距离,选择计算的距离最小的图像组(步骤S26)。 Next, start monitoring whether the specified image insertion area of ​​the template T1 (step S25), step S25 is affirmative, calculating the designated image insertion area of ​​a scene recorded in the recording apparatus 23 in the target table TT1 template image and the target value of the entire scene feature quantity groups a, B, C of the three-dimensional space from the mean value feature quantity (r, g, b) selecting the smallest distance image group calculated (step S26). 并且生成由分类为选择的图像组的图像数据表示的图像的一览图(步骤S27),将其显示在编辑画面30的一览图显示区31上(步骤S28)。 And generating image data of the image group classified by the selection of a list showing the map (step S27), which will be displayed on the editing screen of the list display region 30 of FIG. 31 (step S28). 然后,使用关于按对应该图像插入区域的场景分类的图像组的场景的特征量的平均值,变更模板目标值表TT1的指定的图像插入区域的场景目标值(步骤S29),结束处理。 Then, using the average value of the feature amount concerning the scene by scene on the image group to be inserted into the image region classifying, changing the designated image insertion area of ​​the template target table TT1 target scene (step S29), the process ends. 步骤S29的处理如果在步骤S26以后,则其可以在任何步骤的处理之后,或者与步骤S26以后的处理并列进行。 If the processing of step S29 after step S26, the process it may, after any of the steps, S26 or after the processing steps performed in parallel.

指定其他图像插入区域时,影集编辑PC1与上述同样,参照模板目标值表TT1的指定的图像插入区域的场景目标值,计算该场景目标值与全部的图像组A, B, C 的场景特征量的平均值在特征量(r, g, b)的3维空间的距离,求出计算的距离最小的图像组,生成分类为求出的图像组的图像数据的一览图并显示。 Insertion region specified other image, album editing PC1 as described above, with reference to the specified target value table TT1 template image insertion area of ​​the target scene, the scene feature quantity calculated target value of the scene to all of the image group A, B, C of the average value of the three-dimensional space from feature amounts (r, g, b), the image group determined the minimum distance calculation to generate a list of classified FIG obtained image data and display the image group.

这-样,第2实施例中,对应场景的特征量将由摄影取得的多个图像数据分类为事件包含的每个场景的图像组,在编辑画面30中指定模板的图像插入区域时,参照模板目标值表TT1的指定的图像插入区域的场景目标值选择图像组,生成由分类为选择的图像组的图像数据表示的图像的一览图,并显示在编辑画面30上。 This - like when, in the second embodiment, a plurality of each scene image group corresponding to image data of the scene feature quantity obtained by the photographing included in the event is classified, the specified image insertion area of ​​the template editing screen 30, with reference to the template TT1 target table designated image insertion area of ​​the image group selected target scene, generating a list of image data showing an image from the image group classified into a selected representation, and displayed on the edit screen 30. 由此, 操作人员仅指定模板的图像插入区域,就可仅将应插入于该图像插入区域的场景的图像作为一览图显示出来,因此进行编辑操作的操作人员参照图像一览图就可按每个场景容易地选择图像。 Accordingly, the operator specifies only the image insertion area of ​​the template, can only be inserted in the image insertion area of ​​the scene image is displayed in a list view thus perform editing operation with reference to the operator for each image can be a list of FIG. scene easily selected image. 从而,选择应插入模板的图像插入区域的图像时,可减轻操作人员的负担。 Therefore, when selecting the template image is an image to be inserted into the insertion region, reduce the burden on the operator.

通过由按每个场景分类的图像组中包含的多个图像分别表示的场景的特征量的平均值,校正模板目标值表TT1的场景目标值,可通过关于实际用于编辑的图像的场景特征量来接近场景目标值。 By averaging the feature amount by a plurality of image groups classified for each scene included in a scene, respectively, target value correction table TT1 template target scene, on a scene by the image editing feature actually used amount to close to the target scene. 因此可对应场景特征量的目标值更适当地选择应插入于模板的图像插入区域的图像。 Thus the scene feature quantity may correspond to the target value more suitably selected to be inserted in the image insertion area of ​​the template image.

上述第1和第2实施例中,作为特征量,使用由图像数据表示的图像中包含的R, G, B各种颜色的图像的平均值,但不限定于此,可使用表示由图像所表示的场景的明亮度、色彩度、色相、像构造、被拍摄物体的种类等的至少之一的各种信息。 The first and second embodiments, as a feature quantity using the image represented by the image data included in the R, G, B of the average image of each color, but is not limited thereto, can be represented by the use of image represents the brightness of the scene, the degree of color, hue, image texture, the at least one subject of a variety of information such as the type of the object. 具体说,可使用图像的颜色特性(图像整体的色平衡、平均明亮度、平均色彩度、 表示每个像素的色差的色散度、明亮度矩形图、色彩度矩形图、色相矩形图等)、 图像构造特性(空间频率分布等)、被拍摄物体特性(占居整个图像的面部、天空和大海等的水区域、植物和花草树木等的树木区域、地面和道路等以及建筑物等的面积占据图像整体的比例;面部大小、面部数量、被拍摄物体形状、图像纵横以及是室内摄影还是户外摄影等)等的至少之一来作为特征量。 Specifically, using the image color properties (color balance of the entire image, the average brightness, the average degree of color, the color difference represents the degree of dispersion of each pixel, brightness histogram, the color histogram of the hue histogram and the like), image construction characteristics (spatial frequency distribution, etc.), characteristics of the object to be photographed (facial image occupies the entire area of ​​the sky and the sea water area and other areas of trees, plants and flowers and trees, the ground and roads and buildings occupied the proportion of the whole image; at least one of the face size, the number of faces, the shape of the object being photographed, and the image aspect indoor or outdoor photography photography) and the like as the feature amount.
