Considering an image I of any size. A mask of size 1X10. How to multiply those two?

Answer by Titus Edelhofer

Accepted answer

Hi,

the error indicates what's wrong: your image and your mask have different types (probably your image is e.g. uint8 and your mask is double). If you need your mask to have non integer values (e.g. 2.345), convert your image to double:

dblImage = double(yourImage);

Otherwise you might try to convert your mask to the same integer type as your image (by using uint8, ...).

Please post the relevant part of your code. Without the code and without an exact copy of the error message, we can only guess what's going on.

This is my code. deg0 is 1X10 mask. threshImage is the input Image.

for i=1:10 deg0(i) = 0.25; end deg0=cast(deg0,'uint8'); [rows columns] = size(threshImage); for j = 1 : columns for i= 1 : 10 : rows filtImage0(i,j) = threshImage(i,j).*deg0; end end

Hi,

if you do it by loop, you need to index deg0 as well:

filtImage0(i,j) = threshImage(i,j).*deg0(i);

or

filtImage0(i,j) = threshImage(i,j).*deg0(j);

You cannot multiply a [MxNx3] array directly by a [1x10] vector. It is not clear what kind of output you expect for such a calculation.
