Systems are presented herein, which may be implemented in a wearable device. The system is designed to allow a user to edit media images captured with the wearable device. The system employs eye tracking data to control various editing functions, whether prior to the time of capture, during the time of capture, or after the time of capture. Also presented are methods for determining which sections or regions of media images may be of greater interest to a user or viewer. The method employs eye tracking data to assign saliency to captured media. In both the system and the method, eye tracking data may be combined with data from additional sensors in order to enhance operation.
