The toolbox provides several functions for viewing image data and volumes. To understand all the toolbox image display capabilities, see Image Display and Exploration Overview.
Display Images and Image Sequences
Image Display in a Figure Window
- Image Display and Exploration Overview
The toolbox automatically sets the properties of graphics objects to optimize image display.
- Display an Image in Figure Window
You can display grayscale, RGB, indexed, and binary images in a figure window. Each element of image data is displayed on a single screen pixel.
- Display Multiple Images
You can display multiple images in separate figure windows or individually in the same figure window. You can create a composite of two images for easier comparison.
- Display Different Image Types
You can display truecolor, grayscale, binary, and indexed images in a figure window or in the interactive Image Viewer app.
- Print Images
Print images to use them in a word processing program or graphics editor.
- Manage Display Preferences
You can view and edit preferences to control how images are displayed on your screen by default.
Interactive Image Display
- Get Started with Image Viewer App
You can display, explore, and process images interactively with Image Viewer app.
- View Image Sequences in Video Viewer App
You can animate image sequences using the Video Viewer app. Explore the image sequence with playback, panning, and zooming controls.
- Convert Multiframe Image to Movie
You can create a movie from an image sequence of truecolor or indexed images. Movies can be played in the MATLAB® environment or written to a video file.
- Explore 3-D Volumetric Data with Volume Viewer App
You can view perpendicular cross-sections of 3-D volumetric data using the Volume Viewer app. Adjust the rendering to reveal structures within the volume.
- Explore 3-D Labeled Volumetric Data with Volume Viewer App
You can view 3-D labeled volumetric data using the Volume app. You can view the volume and the labeled volume simultaneously and change the opacity and colormap.
