An image processing apparatus comprises an image inputting section having a photographing lens, a semiconductor image pickup element, such as a CCD, an A/D converting section for converting an obtained image signal to a digital signal, image correcting sections for subjecting respective images which are obtained at a plurality of image inputting sections to correction in terms of geometric displacement due to optical aberration, an image composing section for joining corrected images, a monitor and a printer. When a plurality of images are to be joined, a geometric displacement, such as aberration of the photographing lens, is corrected on a to-be-composed image on the basis of the photographing condition so that a joined image is obtained.
