A method is disclosed. The method includes analyzing a meta-data structure corresponding to each tile of a sheetside image to detect a blank state of the sheetside image, detecting a sensing display item in a data stream and scanning the sheetside image in response to detecting the sensing display item.


An information processing method for causing a computer to process an image, wherein the image processing method causes the computer to execute an acquisition step of acquiring the image, a first production step of producing an editing image for editing at least a portion of the image and a first changing image for changing the editing image to be output, an editing step of editing the image on the produced editing image, a second production step of producing a second changing image based on an image edited at the editing step, and an output step of outputting an output image that has at least the editing image and the second changing image.


An information processing method for causing a computer to process an image, wherein the image processing method causes the computer to execute an acquisition step of acquiring the image, and an output step of outputting an output image by separating between an editing area that is a predetermined area where the image is editable on the image and a changing area other than the predetermined area on the image, wherein, in a case where an operation is done on the changing area, the editing area is moved, and in a case where an operation is done on the editing area, the editing area is not moved.


A sheet discriminator, which can be included in an image forming apparatus, includes an optical information detector, a sheet distinguisher, and a sheet thickness detector. The optical information detector includes a light emitter to emit light to a recording medium and a light receiver to receive the light and detects information of the recording medium. The sheet distinguisher distinguishes a type of the recording medium based on the information detected by the optical information detector. The sheet thickness detector includes a displacement gauge to sandwich the recording medium with an opposing member disposed facing the displacement gauge and to move from an initial position thereof and a displacement detector to detect an amount of displacement of the displacement gauge. The sheet thickness detector detects a thickness of the recording medium based on detection results obtained by the displacement detector.

A rotation detector detecting rotation of a rotor, based on a signal produced according to rotation of the rotor, having a waveform according to a rotational cycle thereof, includes a signal obtaining unit to obtain two signals having phases different from each other; a vector operating unit to determine a vector according to a rotational angle of the rotor, based on the two signals; and a rotation detecting unit to detect rotation of the rotor, based on the vector. The two signals are produced from two elements located at positions farthest in a rotational angle of the rotor among plural rotation detecting elements located at positions different from each other.
