|20100083156||Visualizing, Creating And Editing Blending Modes Methods And Systems - A method of creating a blending mode for blending base colors and blend colors to produce resultant colors for one or more pixels of a digital image includes displaying by a display device a relationship between a first independent variable representing the base colors and a dependent variable representing the resultant colors for a specific value of a second independent variable representing blend colors. The method also includes receiving user input altering the relationship, displaying the altered relationship, and storing the relationship as a blending mode.||04-01-2010|
|20090288033||User-Directed Capture of Unstructured Information from Web Pages with Assignment to Data Type - A software application includes a window having at least first and second panels. The first panel is programmed to provide access to Internet-based sources of information. The software application also includes a user-operable selection tool programmed to select non-structured information from an Internet-based source of information presented in the first panel. The software application also includes a menu responsive to the selection tool that is programmed to appear upon the selection of non-structured information, display a plurality of data types to which the selected non-structured information can be assigned, and receive a user-selection of one of the plurality of data types to which the selected non-structured information is to be assigned. The second panel is programmed to, upon selection of one of the plurality of data types, display the selected non-structured data and indicate to which of the plurality of data types the selected information was assigned.||11-19-2009|
|20090060378||User Interface Methods And Systems For Image Brightness And Contrast - An image editing user interface includes a first control adapted to alter an image property of an image in response to a user input and a second control adapted to operate in cooperation with the first control to alter the image property in response to a user input. The image property is brightness and the first control alters brightness over a range of image values between two endpoints and the second control defines at least one of the endpoints.||03-05-2009|
|20090052802||User Interface Method For Skew Correction - Methods and systems for correcting skew in digital images are disclosed according to embodiments of the invention. Embodiments may include receiving the endpoints of the skew-line, calculating the sine and cosine of the skew-angle from the endpoints and rotating the image using the sine and cosine of the skew-angle. Embodiments of the invention may also include various ways for a user to provide a skew-line and/or endpoints.||02-26-2009|
|20090052792||Computer-Assisted Image Cropping For Book Scans - Methods and systems for cropping images of book pages are disclosed according to one embodiment of the invention. A method may include identifying reference images and receiving cropping rectangles for the reference images. These cropping rectangles associated with reference images may then be used to generate cropping rectangles for images of book pages between the reference images. The cropping rectangles may be generated based on a linear interpolation of the cropping rectangles associated with the reference images and the number of pages between images. The method may also display one or more images of book pages with the associated one or more cropping rectangles superimposed thereon. A user may then have the opportunity to make adjustments to the position and/or size of the cropping rectangles.||02-26-2009|
|20080320060||Systems And Methods For Partitioning Data On Multiple Servers - Systems and methods for partitioning information across multiple storage devices in a web server environment. The system comprises a web server database which includes information related creating a web site. The information is divided into partitions within the database. One of the partitions includes user information and another of the partitions includes content for the web site. Portions of the content for the web site is replicated and maintained within the partition including the user information. Further, a portion of the user information is replicated and maintained in the partition where the content for the web site is maintained. The methods include dividing information into partitions, de-normalizing the received data and replicating the data portions into the various web site locations.||12-25-2008|
|20080285092||Image Quality Monitoring And Tagging At Scan Time - A method of processing a plurality of source documents into scanned images of the source documents includes evaluating the plurality of source documents to thereby assign one or more source document quality metrics indicative of source document image quality. The plurality of source documents are comprised by a project and the source documents of the project are from a common source document type. The source document types include, for example, book pages, paper documents, microfilm documents, machine-printed documents, handwritten documents, print media documents, public records, microfiche documents, and/or the like. The method also includes scanning each of the plurality of source documents to thereby create one or more electronic image files comprising the scanned images and coupling the source document quality metrics to the electronic image files such that the source document quality metrics are thereafter accessible for post-production activities.||11-20-2008|
