Abstract: A remote control device searches for an image data storing device and a printing device that can be used by a user, and notifies an image taking device of device information obtained as a result of this search. The image taking device searches for a device having a predetermined function in response to an instruction from the remote control device, and if a device included in the device information notified by the remote control device is found, transfers an image to the found device. Alternatively, the image taking device connects to a device notified by the remote control device, and sends the image to the notified device to perform printing or storing thereon.
