Below I present two ideas which provide a system for in-place digital photo
editing which is compatible with the existing JPEG standard. This system allows
the editing of various 'views' of an original image without accumulating
additional files. This system promotes simplicity of photo editing and
Multi-View JPEG Extension Header -
An extension header embedded into a JPEG/JFIF image that holds multiple 'views'
of the original image. These multiple 'views' are defined by a set of image
processing instructions contained in this extension header. These instructions
are interpreted by a special
JPEG Viewer to render the desired 'view' from the 'original'. When viewed using
a 'normal' JPEG viewer, these instructions are ignored and only the 'original'
image is rendered. Possible instruction sets: ImageMagick, Photoshop, custom,
Multi-View JPEG Viewer/Editor -
A special viewer/editor implementing the above JPEG extension capabilities.
Operates in two modes. In 'view mode' it simply presents a window displaying the
desired 'view' as selected from a dropdown menu. In 'edit mode' it also contains
a control panel allowing the image processing instructions to be modified by the
user and saved. Implementation: Java (Web Based), C, etc... using ImageMagick,
Photoshop, etc... as a back end.
