The detecting unit detects each of the plurality of display regions receiving direct input by an indicator. The reading unit reads the plurality of pieces of image data from the storing unit. The identification data storing unit stores identification data for identifying the plurality of pieces of image data read by the reading unit and assigns a prescribed order to the identification data for the plurality of pieces of image data. The display controlling unit controls the displaying unit to display the plurality of images according to the prescribed order. The image data identifying unit identifies each of the plurality of pieces of image data for the image displayed in the display region detected by the detecting unit. When the image data identifying unit identifies two pieces of image data among the plurality of pieces of image data, the image data selecting unit, selects or deselects image data from one image data of the two pieces of image data to the other image data of the two pieces of image data according to the prescribed order of the identification data.
