Image Processing Apparatus
- An image processing apparatus enables image data to be handled easily after photography. A server apparatus pattern images and control information in correspondence with user identifiers. A digital camera photographs a subject, obtains a pattern image and a piece of control information from the server apparatus, and judges whether a portion of the image data obtained by photography matches the obtained pattern image. If a matching portion exists, the digital camera operations in accordance with an operation instruction included in the piece of control information. If the operation instruction is mosaic processing, the digital camera performs mosaic processing to the matching portion. If the operation instruction is image replacement, the digital camera replaces the matching portion with a predetermined image or performs CG processing on the matching portion. If the operation instruction is frame deletion, the digital camera deletes the image data.
