i have used imfindcircle to find circle object in image. do you know how to save the image result of the circle object detected?

What kind of result do you want? The function imwrite() saves images - why can't you use that? Please explain why that won't work but only after you read this.

dear raja, most probable you are using viscircles to highlighter the circles, this commands uses superimposing of graph over the image not actually changes the pixel values.
use this program to save circles with markings
clear all
close all
clc
A = imread('coins.png');
figure(1)
imshow(A)
drawnow
[centers, radii, metric] = imfindcircles(A,[15 30]);
centersStrong5 = centers(1:5,:);
radiiStrong5 = radii(1:5);
metricStrong5 = metric(1:5);
%/////// this command makes plot superimpose on the image not the pixels change permanently
viscircles(centersStrong5, radiiStrong5,'EdgeColor','b');
imwrite(A,'image_out_1.jpg');
%/////// for changing the values of the pixels in the image for making circle //////
B(:,:,1)=A;
B(:,:,2)=A;
B(:,:,3)=A;
for i=1:length(radiiStrong5)
theta=0:1:360;
r=round(centersStrong5(i,1) + radiiStrong5(i)*sin(theta));
c=round(centersStrong5(i,2) + radiiStrong5(i)*cos(theta));
for j=1:length(r)
B(c(j),r(j),:)=[0 0 255];
end
end
figure(2)
imshow(B)
drawnow
imwrite(B,'image_out_2.jpg');

Hello.
instead of saving the output of a viscircles + image to a file, I would like to assign it as a variable. I have tried "imfuse(Image,Circles)" but this does not work because the circles are not an image, but a "matlab.graphics.primitive.Group". How would I do that related task?
Thanks

How about making a circles mask with imdilate and a disk element structure?
Something like this:
BW = zeros(size(I,1),size(I,2));
for i = 1:length(points)
landmarksMask(points(i,2),(points(i,1)) = 1;
end
BW = imdilate(BW, strel('disk',3));
And duplicate your image with BW.
