I=imread('filename'); a1=I(1:8,1:8); a2=I(1:8,9:16); a3=I(1:8,17:24); a4=I(1:8,25:32);

b1=I(9:16,1:8); b2=I(9:16,9:16); b3=I(9:16,17:24); b4=I(9:16,25:32);

c1=I(17:24,1:8); c2=I(17:24,9:16); c3=I(17:24,17:24); c4=I(17:24,25:32);

d1=I(25:32,1:8); d2=I(25:32,9:16); d3=I(25:32,17:24); d4=I(25:32,25:32);

could you tell me how to make it short? Thank you

Accepted answer

Don't do this.

Hiding the index in the name of a variable is a bad programming pattern. It is much more efficient to use indices as indices:

img = reshape(a(1:32, 1:32), 8, 4, 8, 4); img = permute(img, [1,3,2,4]);

Now you have `img(:, :, 1, 1)` instead of `a1`.

This is much faster, needs less memory, and allows to expand the method for millions of tiles easily.

You may not even need to do that. It's possible that you do not need to even store the tiles at all. Do you? Why do these tiles need to be stored rather than just operated on and thrown away (reused)? Just operate on one tile at a time if you can - why store forever?

Hi. Use cell array:

I=imread('moon.tif'); C=mat2cell(I(1:32,1:32),8*ones(1,4),8*ones(1,4)); imshow(C{5},'InitialMagnification','fit')

C{5} or C{1,2} is a2 in your code.

i'm still confused. actually if i have these codes:

I=imread('filename'); ul=I(1:256,1:256); ur=I(1:256,257:512); ll=I(257:512,1:256); lr=I(257:512,257:512); s=[ul,lr;ur,lr]; figure,imshow(s)

but if i have 32x32pixels,then i divide it into 8x8blocks.i should to write long codes

I=imread('filename'); a1=I(1:8,1:8); a2=I(1:8,9:16); a3=I(1:8,17:24); a4=I(1:8,25:32);

b1=I(9:16,1:8); b2=I(9:16,9:16); b3=I(9:16,17:24); b4=I(9:16,25:32);

c1=I(17:24,1:8); c2=I(17:24,9:16); c3=I(17:24,17:24); c4=I(17:24,25:32);

d1=I(25:32,1:8); d2=I(25:32,9:16); d3=I(25:32,17:24); d4=I(25:32,25:32); s=[a1,b1,c2,d3;a3,b2,c3,d4;...]

i want to use 'for'. how can i get it? thanks for your fast answer

It's not good having variable named a1,a2,..., see this:

http://matlab.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#How_can_I_create_variables_A1.2C_A2.2C....2CA10_in_a_loop.3F

I=imread('moon.tif'); C=mat2cell(I(1:32,1:32),8*ones(1,4),8*ones(1,4)); imshow(C{5},'InitialMagnification','fit')

C in this code is:

C={a1,a2,a3,a4;b1,b2,b3,b4;c1,c2,c3,c4;d1,d2,d3,d4}

and for s:

s=[C{1,1} C{2,1} C{3,2} C{4,3};C{1,3} C{2,2} C{3,3} C{4,4};...]

You can try as well something like this

I=imread(your_32x32_image_name); division = 8; % set according to yuor needs L = size(I,1)/division; subI = cell( L,L ); for row=1:L for col=1:L subI{row,col} = I( (row:row*division),(col:(col*division)) ); end end
