%% Colour Filter
%% This function can be used for separating or filter out Red components, 
%% Green components and Blue Components of colors from the color images.
%% Function C = colorfilter(img,color)
%% input    img = Color image (The input image should be a color image)
%%          color = which color want to be filtered out from the color image
%%                  it may be 'R' / 'r' / 'G' / 'g' / 'B' / 'b'                 
%%  Example: C = colorfilter(img,'r');
