Abstract

Features are described providing settings customized by a user in an image editing program, such as custom filters and presets having custom parameters, to be available for selection and use on other types of devices running an image editing program. Other features are described providing different quality display filters which allow an image to be displayed with different visual quality based on the display capabilities of the device being used to edit and view the image. In addition, UI options can be made available on some devices and not available on other devices based on device capability such as screen size or form of input device.

CUSTOMIZED AND DEVICE-SPECIFIC SETTINGS FOR IMAGE EDITOR AND VIEWER

ABSTRACT

Features are described providing settings customized by a user in an image editing program, such as custom filters and presets having custom parameters, to be available for selection and use on other types of devices running an image editing program. Other features are described providing different quality display filters which allow an image to be displayed with different visual quality based on the display capabilities of the device being used to edit and view the image. In addition, UI options can be made available on some devices and not available on other devices based on device capability such as screen size or form of input device.

DESCRIPTION

This disclosure describes various features relating to image editing and viewing on different devices and different types of devices.

Customized Settings for Multiple Devices

    An image editing program can be used on a variety of different devices by a particular user, such as a desktop computer, laptop computer, smart phone, and tablet computer. For example, an image editing program can be provided in a web page within a browser program running on different devices. Other implementations can provide an image editing program running under an operating system of a device, or running remotely on a server and providing a display on the device.

    The image editing program can offer the user a variety of different editing operations in a user interface displayed on a display screen or other display of a device. The editing operations can include filters, which provide the user with different ways to adjust characteristics of an image. For example, filters can include adjustments for brightness, contrast, exposure, saturation, various color settings, warmth or coolness (enhance warm or cool colors in image), shadow (boost shadow areas of image), etc. In some cases, filters can provide more complex effects to images, such as noise reduction, structure (enhancing edges in an image), a worn or retro look (scratches, faded colors, etc.), a dramatic look (increasing contrast and other attributes), a frame (adding a frame to a border of an image), etc. Presets can be any such filters

or particular combinations of such filters, in which parameters of the filters have been

predetermined or previously selected by the user.

    A user can create customized filters and presets for use in the image editing program. For example, a user can customize a noise reduction filter by changing one or more parameters of the filter, which changes the results of applying the filter to an image. In one example, the user can change the magnitude or amount by which the noise reduction filter reduces noise or reduces a particular type of noise (e.g., luminance noise, color noise, etc.), how much the filter preserves details, the radius and/or type of a noise reduction blur, and/or other parameters. Preset parameters can include all th...
