  By the way, when the image processing apparatus is made to read the image of the original and the image processing is performed on the obtained original image under the image processing conditions set in advance, separately from the reading of the original image, It is conceivable that a sample sheet on which a code associated with the image processing condition is printed is read by an image processing apparatus. However, in this case, the user needs to perform the work of reading the sample sheet into the scanner and the work of reading the document into the scanner separately, which takes time and effort. On the other hand, in the image processing apparatus 1 according to the present embodiment, it is possible to reduce the work burden on the user when causing the image processing apparatus 1 to execute processing for obtaining an image obtained by performing desired image processing on an image of a document. is there.

  For example, as illustrated in FIG. 3, the specific sheet ST <b> 1 is a rectangular transparent film member having a size larger than a document E <b> 1 having a predetermined size such as an A4 size. FIG. 3 shows a state where the document E1 and the specific sheet ST1 are viewed from the contact glass 10 side. The specific sheet ST1 is placed on the document E1 placed on the contact glass 10 before reading the image of the document E1. Specifically, the specific sheet ST1 is overlaid on the document E1 in a state where one vertex Q1 of the document E1 and the vertex P1 of the specific sheet ST1 are aligned with a predetermined reference position of the contact glass 10.

  In this state where the specific sheet ST1 and the original E1 are overlapped, the external area (non-contact area) H1 (hatching area in FIG. 3) of the specific sheet ST1 that protrudes from the original E1 without contacting the original E1. A specific image M1 is formed. The specific image M1 is a barcode corresponding to image processing information predetermined for image processing. The specific image M1 may be a two-dimensional barcode such as a QR code (registered trademark). Further, the specific image M1 may be an image configured by one or more of characters, graphics, symbols, and colors as another embodiment. In the present embodiment, the specific image M1 is formed on the surface that contacts the document E1, but an embodiment formed on the surface that does not contact the document E1 is also considered as another embodiment. . The specific sheet ST1 is an example of a specific member in the present invention.

  4A to 4C show variations ST11, ST21, and ST31 of the specific sheet ST1. Different specific images M11, M12, and M13 are formed on each of the specific sheets ST11, ST21, and ST31, and the specific images M11, M12, and M13 are associated with different image processing information. Thus, in the image processing apparatus 1, the specific sheet ST1 corresponding to each piece of image processing information is prepared. 4D to 4F show a state in which the specific sheets ST11, ST21, and ST31 and the originals E11, E12, and E13 (hatched portions) are overlaid.

  In the present embodiment, the image processing is division processing for dividing a document image and enlargement processing for enlarging each of the divided images, and the image processing information includes a division mode of the division processing and an enlargement magnification in the enlargement processing. is there. The document image is an image of the entire document including not only a drawn image but also a blank sheet image. The example shown in FIG. 3 shows image processing information in which an original image of the original E12 is divided into two parts in the vertical and horizontal directions and the divided image is enlarged twice in both the vertical and horizontal directions. Alternatively, the example shown in FIG. 3 shows image processing information that is a process of enlarging the original image of the original E12 twice vertically and horizontally and dividing the enlarged image into two vertically and horizontally.

  As shown in FIG. 3, the specific sheet ST1 is formed with a dividing line L1 indicating the dividing mode. This makes it easier for the user to image the state in which the original image is divided. In this embodiment, the image of the dividing line L1 is not in contact with the document E1 in order to prevent the image of the dividing line L1 from being read through when light is emitted from the LED light source 16 during reading of the document. It is formed on the side surface. However, an embodiment in which the dividing line L1 is formed on a surface that does not contact the document E1 is also conceivable as another embodiment. In addition, it is also conceivable as another embodiment that the dividing line L1 is formed with a color with high brightness, or formed with a thin line.

  It is also conceivable that the specific sheet ST1 on which such a dividing line L1 is formed is provided for each size of originals to be superimposed. However, if the number (type) of the specific sheet ST1 increases when the specific sheet ST1 is provided for each document size, it is considered that the dividing line L1 for each size document is formed on one specific sheet ST1. It is done. In this case, it is conceivable that the dividing line L1 is formed so as to be visually identifiable by brightness, thickness, line type, etc. for each document size.

  The storage unit 8 is a nonvolatile memory such as an EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory: registered trademark) or a hard disk. In the storage unit 8, a correspondence relationship between the specific image M1 formed on the specific sheet ST1 and the image processing information is stored in advance.

  The control unit 9 is a microcomputer having a CPU, a ROM, a RAM, and the like. The ROM of the control unit 9 stores a processing program for causing the CPU of the control unit 9 to execute various processes. The control unit 9 controls the image processing apparatus 1 in an integrated manner.

  Specifically, the control unit 9 functions as the image processing unit 91 by executing a program using the CPU. Note that a configuration in which a part or a plurality of functions of the control unit 9 is provided as an electronic circuit is also conceivable as another embodiment.

  The control unit 9 reads an image in a reading range corresponding to a preset specific sheet ST1 larger than the document E1 placed on the contact glass 10 when a division enlargement mode to be described later is set to be effective. Have Part 2 read. Then, the image processing unit 91 indicates the specific image M1 when the specific image M1 of the specific sheet ST1 is included in the external region H1 in the read image read by the reading operation by the image reading unit 2. Image processing based on the image processing information can be performed on the read image. In the present embodiment, the image processing is the division processing and the enlargement processing.

  Next, the copying process executed by the control unit 9 will be described with reference to FIG. In the flowchart of FIG. 5, steps S501, S502,... Represent processing procedures (step numbers). The copying process shown in the flowchart of FIG. 5 is executed by the image processing unit 91 of the control unit 9 when the main power supply of the image processing apparatus 1 is turned on.

<Step S501>
In step S <b> 501, the control unit 9 determines whether or not a first operation signal indicating that the divided enlargement mode is to be set valid is received from the operation display unit 6. If the control unit 9 determines that the first operation signal has not been received from the operation display unit 6 (NO in step S501), the process proceeds to step S503. On the other hand, if the control unit 9 determines that the first operation signal has been received from the operation display unit 6 (YES in step S501), the process proceeds to step S502.

<Step S502>
In step S502, the control unit 9 sets the division enlargement mode flag to ON. Note that the control unit 9 sets the divided enlargement mode flag to off at the end of the copying process or when an operation for setting the divided enlargement mode flag to invalid is performed.

<Step S503>
In step S <b> 503, the control unit 9 determines whether a second operation signal indicating an instruction to start copying is received from the operation unit 30. If it is determined that the second operation signal has not been received (NO in step S503), the control unit 9 returns the process to step S501. On the other hand, if it is determined that the second operation signal has been received (YES in step S503), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S504.

<Step S504>
In step S504, the control unit 9 determines whether or not the division enlargement mode flag is on. If the control unit 9 determines that the division enlargement mode flag is off (NO in step S504), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S505. On the other hand, when it is determined that the divided enlargement mode flag is on (YES in step S504), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S506.

<Step S505>
In step S505, the control unit 9 causes the image reading unit 2 and the image forming unit 5 to perform a normal copying operation. That is, the control unit 9 causes the image reading unit 2 to perform a reading operation of reading an image in a reading range corresponding to the size of the document E1 detected using the document size sensor 35. Then, the control unit 9 causes the image forming unit 5 to execute processing for forming an image obtained by the reading operation on the recording sheet.

<Step S506>
In step S <b> 506, the control unit 9 causes the image reading unit 2 to perform a reading operation for a predetermined reading range according to the size of the document E <b> 1 detected using the document size sensor 35. This reading range is a reading range larger than the size of the document E1. The control unit 9 stores the read image obtained by this reading operation in the RAM. The read image includes a document image and an image outside the document corresponding to the image in the external area H1 (see FIG. 3).

<Step S507>
In step S507, the control unit 9 extracts a document image from the read image. Specifically, the control unit 9 outputs an image of the region for the size based on the position of the corner of the read image corresponding to the predetermined reference position of the contact glass 10 among the read images. Extract as a document image.

<Step S508>
In step S508, the control unit 9 analyzes whether or not the specific image M1 is included in the non-original image. That is, the control unit 9 determines whether or not an image outside the document includes an image that matches any one of the specific images M1 stored in the storage unit 8. Note that the control unit 9 reads a barcode or the like existing in the image outside the document, and if the information corresponding to the barcode or the like includes identification information indicating that the image is the specific image M1, the image outside the document. It may be determined that the specific image M1 is included. In this case, the control unit 9 may determine whether or not the specific image M1 exists for the entire read image, not the image outside the document.

<Step S509>
In step S509, when it is determined that the specific image M1 has been detected (YES in step S509), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S510. On the other hand, when it is determined that the specific image M1 has not been detected (NO in step S509), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S512.

<Step S510>
In step S510, the control unit 9 specifies the image processing information indicated by the specific image M1 based on the correspondence between the specific image M1 stored in the storage unit 8 and the image processing information, and based on the image processing information. Image processing is performed on the original image. For example, as shown in FIG. 3, the specific image M1 corresponds to image processing information indicating image processing of generating a plurality of enlarged images P1 to P4 obtained by enlarging the divided images obtained by dividing the image vertically and horizontally twice each vertically and horizontally. If it has been added, the control unit 9 executes the image processing. The image processing information corresponding to the specific image M1 includes information for identifying the type of the specific image M1, and the storage unit 8 stores image processing information corresponding to each type of the specific image M1. However, the image processing information may be included in the specific image M1.

<Step S511>
In step S511, the control unit 9 forms an image (each of images P1 to P4 in the example shown in FIG. 3) after execution of the image processing in step S510 on a recording sheet. In the example shown in FIG. 3, the four images P <b> 1 to P <b> 4 formed by the image processing are separately formed on four recording sheets.

<Step S512>
In step S512, the control unit 9 causes the image forming unit 5 to execute a process for forming the original image extracted in step S507 on one recording sheet. Note that when the step S512 is executed, the division enlargement mode is set to be valid, but since the specific image M1 is not detected, the control unit 9 sets in advance in the step S512. It may be informed that the specific image M1 has not been detected by a caution message or the like.

  As described above, the specific sheet ST1 on which the specific image M1 associated with the preset image processing information is formed is superimposed on the original, and the image reading unit 2 can read them to obtain the image processing information. Therefore, an image subjected to the image processing is obtained. As a result, in the image processing apparatus 1, the work burden on the user when the image processing apparatus 1 executes the image processing on the document image is reduced.

  By the way, the specific member on which the specific image M1 is formed is not limited to the specific sheet ST1, and for example, a clear file-like member having two film portions may be considered as another embodiment. In this case, when there is a joint portion having a predetermined width for joining the two film portions to each other, the position of the document E1 on the contact glass 10 is shifted in the width direction by the predetermined width. Therefore, the image processing unit 91 shifts the position to be extracted from the read image as the document image by the predetermined width in the width direction with respect to the case of the first embodiment.

  In addition, the specific member is not limited to the film-like member as described above, and may be a piece-like (tag-like) member, for example. In this configuration, even when the specific member is superimposed on the document, the specific image M1 formed on the specific member can be detected from the read image. Therefore, when the image processing apparatus 1 is in the division enlargement mode, for example, in the first mode in which the image reading unit 2 reads an image in the reading range larger than the document E1, the image in the reading range having the same size as the document E1. May be provided so as to be selectable. In the second mode, the read image matches the document image, and the document image extraction process is not necessary. If the specific member is present in the document image, the control unit 9 may erase the specific image M1 formed on the specific member from the document image.

  As a method for detecting the size of the document, the following method can be considered as another embodiment in addition to the method using the document size sensor 35. That is, for example, immediately before the contact glass 10 is closed by the document cover 3, the control unit 9 causes the reading unit 11 to perform a prescan that scans the document or the like by a predetermined amount in the sub-scanning direction 18. In the read image obtained as a result, a difference in density occurs between the original image and the image outside the original, so that a boundary (edge) between the original image and the image outside the original can be detected. Based on this boundary It is possible to detect the size of the document. Further, in the configuration that requires the user to input the document size in advance using the operation unit 40, the process of detecting the size of the document image can be omitted. Further, even when the specific sheet ST1 is prepared for each document size and the size of the document is included in the image processing information, the document size can be determined based on the specific image M1, so that the document image It is possible to omit the process of detecting the size.

(Second Embodiment)
The image processing apparatus 1 according to the present embodiment is obtained by adding a function of storing the read image in the storage unit 8 to the image processing apparatus 1 according to the first embodiment so that the read image can be used again. Of the image processing apparatus 1 according to the present embodiment, the description of the configuration common to the image processing apparatus 1 according to the first embodiment is omitted.

  In the present embodiment, the control unit 9 stores the read image read by the image reading unit 2 in the storage unit 8 for a preset storage time, and erases the read image from the storage unit 8 after the storage time has elapsed. To do. The storage time may be the same for each read image, but it is conceivable that the control unit 9 can set the storage time for each read image by a predetermined second operation. In this case, the time until deletion from the storage unit 8 can be changed in accordance with the frequency of use of the original image.

  Specifically, the control unit 9 functions as the display processing unit 92 by executing a program using the CPU. The display processing unit 92 can cause the display unit 29 to display the document image included in the read image stored in the storage unit 8. An embodiment in which the display processing unit 92 displays the entire read image stored in the storage unit 8 on the display unit 29 is also conceivable as another embodiment.

  On the other hand, the image processing unit 91 corresponds to the selected document image in response to the first operation of selecting one or a plurality of the document images displayed on the display unit 29 by the display processing unit 92. The read image is read from the storage unit 8. The image processing unit 91 performs image processing on the read image based on the image processing information corresponding to the specific image M1 included in the read image.

  Next, the storage control process executed by the control unit 9 will be described with reference to FIG. In the flowchart of FIG. 7, steps S701, S702,... Represent processing procedures (step numbers). The storage control process shown in the flowchart of FIG. 7 is executed by the image processing unit 91 after step S511 of the image processing shown in FIG.

  In the present embodiment, when it is determined in step S503 that the second operation signal has not been received (NO in step S503), the control unit 9 does not return the process to step S501 but stores the memory. The process after step S702 of the control process is executed. Moreover, the control part 9 advances a process to step S702 instead of returning a process to step S501 after the process of step S505 and S512. Further, the process of storing the read image obtained by the reading operation in the storage unit 8 is executed by the control unit 9 in step S506.

<Step S701>
As shown in FIG. 7, in step S <b> 701, the control unit 9 starts measuring the time for which the read image stored in the storage unit 8 in step S <b> 506 is stored in the storage unit 8.

<Step S702>
In step S <b> 702, the control unit 9 determines whether there is a read image for which a preset storage time has elapsed since the start of timing. If the controller 9 determines that there is no read image for which the preset storage time has elapsed (NO in step S702), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S703. On the other hand, if it is determined that there is a read image for which the preset storage time has elapsed (YES in step S702), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S708.

  Note that the control unit 9 may store the execution date and time of the image processing in the storage unit 8 in association with the read image read by the image processing in step S701. In this case, in step S702, the control unit 9 can determine whether or not the storage time has elapsed for each read image based on the difference between the execution date and time corresponding to each read image and the current date and time. is there.

<Step S703>
In step S <b> 703, the control unit 9 determines whether or not a first operation for designating a read image from the read images stored in the storage unit 8 has been performed. In the first operation, a thumbnail image of a document image as a job target is selected from a list of thumbnail images of document images in each of one or a plurality of read images stored in the storage unit 8 using a touch panel (not shown). It can be an operation. Alternatively, the first operation may be an operation for selecting the file name of the read image to be processed from the list of one or more read image file names stored in the storage unit 8 using the touch panel. It is done. The list of thumbnail images or the list of file names is displayed on the display unit 29 when the division enlargement mode is set or when the read image is stored in the storage unit 8. When it is determined that the first operation has not been performed (NO in step S703), the control unit 9 returns the process to step S501. On the other hand, when it is determined that the first operation has been performed (YES in step S703), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S704.

<Step S704>
In step S704, the control unit 9 causes the display unit 29 to display a document image included in the read image specified by the first operation. This process is performed by the display processing unit 92.

<Step S705>
In step S705, the control unit 9 determines whether an operation for instructing execution of the job has been performed. If it is determined that an operation for instructing execution of the job has been performed (YES in step S705), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S706. On the other hand, when it is determined that the operation for instructing the execution of the job is not performed (NO in step S705), the control unit 9 advances the process to step S707.

<Step S706>
In step S <b> 706, the control unit 9 causes each unit of the image processing apparatus 1 to perform a job for the document image displayed on the display unit 29. And the control part 9 returns a process to step S501.

<Step S707>
In step S707, the control unit 9 determines whether a cancel operation for canceling the job execution instruction has been performed. When it is determined that the cancel operation has not been performed (NO in step S707), the control unit 9 executes the process of step S705 again.
