BACKGROUND

The present disclosure relates to an information processing device, an information processing method, and a program.

In recent years, there has been known a UI (User Interface) that displays a plurality of thumbnail images on a display screen, which can be operated by a user, and allows the user to select the thumbnail image(s).

For example, there is known a UI that creates and displays thumbnail images from scenes of every predetermined time interval among scenes that constitute moving image data. Such a UI can reproduce moving image data from a scene desired by a user by making the user select a given thumbnail image.

Note that the number of thumbnail images displayed on the UI increases or decreases in accordance with the time intervals of scenes taken out of moving image data. Accordingly, when a user performs an operation of increasing the number of thumbnail images, for example, the UI displays thumbnail images of scenes of shorter time intervals. As a user operation of increasing or decreasing the number of thumbnail images, the following technology is known.

For example, a display device disclosed in JP 2011-003977A displays, when a pinch-put operation is performed on a thumbnail image of moving image data, thumbnail images of shorter time intervals. Accordingly, a user can easily check the details of each scene.

SUMMARY

However, when the number of list items displayed on the U1, such as thumbnail images or icons, is increased in response to a user operation, it is difficult for the user to know in advance what kind of list items are to be added to the list.

Accordingly, it is desirable to provide an information processing device, an information processing method, and a program that are novel and improved and that allow a user to recognize in advance list items to be added to the list.

According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, there is provided an information processing device including a display control unit configured to display a plurality of lists including a first list and a second list each having list items; and perform display of coupling to the first list a list item of the second list that is a sub-list of the first list.

According to another embodiment of the present disclosure, there is provided an information processing method including displaying a plurality of lists including a first list and a second list each having list items, and performing display of coupling to the first list a list item of the second list that is a sub-list of the first list.

According to still another embodiment of the present disclosure, there is provided a program causing a computer to perform processes of displaying a plurality of lists including a first list and a second list each having list items; and performing display of coupling to the first list a list item of the second list that is a sub-list of the first list.

As described above, according to the present disclosure, by displaying a second list to be coupled to a first list, and performing display of coupling the second list to the first list in response to a user operation, it becomes possible to allow a user to recognize in advance list items to be added before the completion of the coupling.

As described above, according to the present disclosure, it is possible to allow a user to recognize in advance list items to be added to a list.
