immultiply

Multiply two images or multiply image by constant

Syntax

Z = immultiply(X,Y)

Description

Z = immultiply(X,Y) multiplies each element in array X by the corresponding element in array Y and returns the product in the corresponding element of the output array Z.

If X and Y are real numeric arrays with the same size and class, then Z has the same size and class as X. If X is a numeric array and Y is a scalar double, then Z has the same size and class as X.

If X is logical and Y is numeric, then Z has the same size and class as Y. If X is numeric and Y is logical, then Z has the same size and class as X.

immultiply computes each element of Z individually in double-precision floating point. If X is an integer array, then elements of Z exceeding the range of the integer type are truncated, and fractional values are rounded.

If X and Y are numeric arrays of the same size and class, you can use the expression X.*Y instead of immultiply.

Examples

collapse all

Read a grayscale image into the workspace, then convert the image to uint8.

I = imread('moon.tif');
I16 = uint16(I);

Multiply the image by itself. Note that immultiply converts the class of the image from uint8 to uint16 before performing the multiplication to avoid truncating the results.

J = immultiply(I16,I16);

Show the original image and the processed image.

imshow(I)

figure
imshow(J)

Read an image into the workspace.

I = imread('moon.tif');

Scale each value of the image by a constant factor of 0.5.

J = immultiply(I,0.5);

Display the original image and the processed image.

imshow(I)

imshow(J)
