just a random image I found on google. Is it possible to make the black parts (crack) darker and the background (concrete) lighter?

If you have the image processing toolbox you can use imcontrast.

Calculate the difference from the image's mid level (128 probably, but this depends on how you're dealing with the image), and multiply it by a number greater than 1. Add that difference back to the mid level.

Adjusted_Contrast = (Image - meanlevel) * scale;
Adjusted_Image = meanlevel + Adjusted_Contrast;
You need to change data types & values of mean level & scale, as you need.

You can use imadjust() or just pass in the range you want to see into imshow().
