How to substitute call to imshow() with image()

Asked by max

I'm new to matlab. I do not own the Image Processing Toolbox required to use imshow().

I want to run some code that includes this line:

imshow([im1 im2]);

Where im1 and im2 come from a call to imread() and are manipulated in the code. I tried this:

image([im1 im2]);

But it doesn't work. It displays im2 twice instead of 1 and 2 next to each other.

I tried to switch the arguments around:

image([im2 im1]);

And it works fine, the problem is: that's not what I want. I want to see im1 on the left and im2 on the right.

What's the problem here? Thanks for your help

I don't have any trouble with this:

    X = randi(256,256,'uint8');
    Y = imread('cameraman.tif');
    image([X Y]); axis off;

If you don't have the IPT, try using imdisp from file exchange
