In an image processing apparatus, an image including an object is displayed on an operation surface. A position in the image that is designated by a user input is recognized. When the object is displayed at the recognized position, different editing operations with respect to the object are accepted according to the length of duration during which the position is continuously designated. As the different editing operations, at least a copying operation to copy the object and a cutting operation to cut the object from the image are distinctively accepted.
