Asked by azarm

Hi Hi,

i have a problem with saving a plot in a directory as a figure(.tif). I have a main function. Each time i run my code, the code reaches a directory, takes image sequence and make some outputs. What i need to do, is to save some output plots in a directory. I know how to save a figure, but it does not work for plots! (specially i have a figure with hold on and i make plot inside the figure and want to save it!)

It isn't clear to me what you are asking. Can you include code for a very simple example?

i meant : print('-dtiff','plot.tif')

Does this work for you?

If you can create a variable with the full path to the directory, which you seem to be able to do, then you should be able to use


as I said before. (I accidentally used double quotes instead of single quotes before.)
