Abstract It is known that many people with visual impairments desire to take photos. In taking photos, however, they often face difficulty in pointing the camera at the subject. In this paper, we address this problem by proposing a novel photo-taking system named VisPhoto. Unlike existing ones, the proposed system generates a photo as post-production of an omni-directional camera image. That is, when the shutter button is pressed, the proposed system captures an omni-directional camera image. In the post-production, from the objects detected in the image, the user selects the ones that should be included and excluded. Finally, as a ``photo,'' the system outputs a cropped region satisfying the user's preference and looking beautiful from an aesthetic point of view.
