Convert image to 16-bit unsigned integers


I2 = im2uint16(I)
RGB2 = im2uint16(RGB)
I = im2uint16(BW)
X2 = im2uint16(X,'indexed')
gpuarrayB = im2uint16(gpuarrayA,___)


I2 = im2uint16(I) converts the intensity image I to uint16, rescaling the data if necessary. If the input image is of class uint16, the output image is identical to it.

RGB2 = im2uint16(RGB) converts the truecolor image RGB to uint16, rescaling the data if necessary.

I = im2uint16(BW) converts the binary image BW to a uint16 intensity image, changing 1-valued elements to 65535.

X2 = im2uint16(X,'indexed') converts the indexed image X to uint16, offsetting the data if necessary. If X is of class double, max(X(:)) must be 65536 or less.

gpuarrayB = im2uint16(gpuarrayA,___) performs the conversion on a GPU. The input image and the output image are gpuArrays. This syntax requires the Parallel Computing Toolbox™.

Class Support

Intensity and truecolor images can be uint8, uint16, double, logical, single, or int16. Indexed images can be uint8, uint16, double, or logical. Binary input images must be logical. The output image is uint16.

If the input gpuArray gpuarrayA is an intensity or truecolor image, it can be uint8, uint16, int16, logical, single, or double. If gpuarrayA is an indexed image, it can be uint8, uint16, double or logical. If gpuarrayA is a binary image, it must be logical. The output gpuArray image is uint16.

Code Generation

This function supports the generation of C code using MATLAB® Coder™. Note that if you choose the generic MATLAB Host Computer target platform, the function generates code that uses a precompiled, platform-specific shared library. Use of a shared library preserves performance optimizations but limits the target platforms for which code can be generated. For more information, see Understanding Code Generation with Image Processing Toolbox.

MATLAB Function Block

You can use this function in the MATLAB Function Block in Simulink.

Introduced before R2006a
