Detect face from multiple image, crop it and save it in different file.

2 views (last 30 days)
I have face dataset and trying to detect faces, crop them and save them in different file. I have this code but its giving error "Unable to open file "C:\Users\mstfy\Desktop\Matlab\alex\affine1\" for writing. You might not have write permission." i tried to change the file and location but its still not working. Also i am not really sure that this code will read all images, detect every face and save it. Can anyone please check it and help me with it please ?
location = 'C:\Users\mstfy\Desktop\Matlab\alex\newdata\*.jpg';
croppedimg = 'C:\Users\mstfy\Desktop\Matlab\alex\affine1\';
imds = imageDatastore ( 'C:\Users\mstfy\Desktop\Matlab\alex\newdata' , ...
'IncludeSubfolders' , true, ...
'LabelSource' , 'foldernames' );
idx = randperm (numel (imds.Files), 16);
j = 1;
for t = 1: 16
img = readimage (imds, idx (t));
FaceDetect = vision.CascadeObjectDetector;
FaceDetect.MergeThreshold = 7;
BB = step (FaceDetect, img);
for i = 1: size (BB, 1)
rectangle ( 'Position' , BB (i, :), 'LineWidth' , 3, 'LineStyle' , '-' , 'EdgeColor' , 'r' );
for i = 1: size (BB, 1)
J = imcrop (img, BB (i, :));
figure (3);
subplot (6, 6, i);
imshow (J);
j = j + 1;
imwrite (J,croppedimg,'jpg' )

If you want to read jpg images from one folder and save cropped images with same name and format but in different folder you can try this
for i=1:length(srcFile)
%here is the part of code which create cropped image named J
You can of course modify this piece to save your images with different names but to avoid the error you recievieng you should try include file name and format in filename and then use imwrite.
