imshow - Stretching image to fill axis

Asked by Matt
on 13 Jan 2013

I'm trying to display an image on an axis within a GUI. I'm using the imshow function, but it keeps the dimension ratio of the image. I would like to stretch the image, ignoring the dimension ratio, to fill the axis. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Matt

You can display with imshow() and use the 'XData' and 'YData' property. For example:

imshow(grayImage, [], 'XData', [0 .5], 'YData', [0 .1]);


You can pass in coordinates to image() and imagesc()

Xdata and Ydata worked great, thanks!

Have you tried image or imagesc? Or the 'axis image' command?
