Image Number 2 for United States Patent #5587752.
A photographic camera, system and method are presented for producing a composite image or print from an exposed film frame and a selected prerecorded image. The prerecorded image is selected by the photographer at the time of exposure of the film frame (14) from a known set of prerecorded images. A selected identifier (18) is imprinted, for example, optically or magnetically onto the film (10, 10') commensurate with exposure of a photographic image onto the film frame (14). The coding is employed in a subsequent automated scanning, integrating and printing operation (79) to produce the desired composite image.
