[Problems to be solved by the invention]
In a recording / reproducing apparatus equipped with a function of recording and reproducing a plurality of types of image data such as moving images and still images on a single recording medium, only moving images or only still images are processed during processing such as editing or copying. In some cases, it is difficult to distinguish moving images and still images on the thumbnail image display screen, which is inconvenient. Therefore, it is important that types can be easily distinguished.
[0008]
For example, when executing a function such as a DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) setting for setting the number of prints for a still image, the user needs to directly search and specify the image of the still image. It is very important to be able to display the types in a way that is easy for the user to understand and to be able to search quickly.
[0009]
However, in the conventional technique described in Patent Document 1, the type of image data can be distinguished by the difference in display of thumbnail images, and the searchability is improved. Is recorded, or when a large number of thumbnail images are displayed on one screen, it takes time and effort to search for specific types of image data, resulting in poor searchability.
[0010]
That is, when the DPOF is set, if there is a large amount of image data, the number of thumbnail images of still images that can be displayed in one screen is limited. There is a problem that an operation of displaying an image display screen needs to be performed. Further, when a large number of thumbnail images are displayed, the display area of one thumbnail image is reduced, and it is difficult to determine the thumbnail image as a still image.
[0011]
An object of the present invention is to improve the searchability of thumbnail images on a display screen of search information such as thumbnail images in a recording and reproducing apparatus having a function of recording and reproducing a plurality of types of image data on a recording medium. It is in.
