The Image Morphology app is an interactive exploratory environment, with which you can try different morphological operations and structuring elements on your image.
This app supports most morphological operations, including those (like BWHITMISS) that can take multiple STRELS. All STRELS, including arbitrary ones, are now supported. You can easily see the effects of changing the size or shape of your STREL, or of trying different morphological operations. You can also "activate" the modified image to string operations.
The Image Morphology app is a REPLACEMENT FOR MORPHTOOL, which has been shared on the File Exchange since 2007. This version fixes several minor (but long-standing) bugs, and addresses changes needed for R2014b readiness. Image Morphology (as an app, or as function |imageMorphology|) should be more stable and less buggy than previous versions.
Thanks very much for the note--always nice to hear that my software was helpful. I'd steer you to this blog post on the topic:
Sorry...not sure what paper you're talking about. This GUI agglomerates many of the morphological operations enabled through the Image Processing Toolbox, and allows interactive manipulation of all of their input parameters. There's no single paper to share.
Thanks for the rating! Some morphological operations (notably here, BWHITMISS) require the specification of two structuring elements. For the purposes of MorphTool, SE1 is read from StrelTool1, and SE2 is read from StrelTool2.
Caleb: I believe that the zip file creates a subdirectory that contains the helper files (including tabPanel). Please either drag them out of that folder, or add the folder to your MATLAB path and try again!
Can you tell me how to recreate the error you're seeing? I never assigned a callback to a uipanel, nor have I seen that particular error. Is it reproducible? How can I trigger it (so I can figure out what's going on)? And what does "I have put the files outside the folder" mean? (I wonder if this is a path issue.)
recep, Kelly, et al: I see what's happening now. I provided auxiliary files in a folder, assuming that they would be put on your MATLAB path. You can either add those folders manually to the path, or drag the files out of the folders, or issue this (or equivalent) command:
@recep and Kelly: Would you please verify that you have the latest version, and that it came with the TabPanel function? If not, please grab the new version. If so, it would help if you could tell me reproduction steps that trigger the problem.
Thanks to you both. I just figured out that you are using a version of MATLAB that predates R2009b. (Correct?) I use tildes to ignore unwanted arguments; that capability was introduced in '9b.) TO FIX THIS: Either upgrade to a newer MATLAB ;), or replace the tildes in my code with some word like "junk." That should do it!
Is it possible that you accidentally backspaced and deleted something? I don't see any indication of an unbalanced parenthesis in that file. Would you re-download and verify the error, and let me know if you still see it, please?
@Nayanjyoti: You are correct: the file is 'cameraman.tif'; my code should reflect that. My windows machine has case-insensitive filename matching, which allowed me to be sloppy. Your Unix environment (correct?) is not. I'll modify the file.
@Nayanjyoti: Thanks for the feedback; I plan to continue ot expand MORPHTOOL. Actually, though (on a PC at least), imread is insensitive to the case of an input image name. So both "imread('Cameralman.tif')" and "imread('cameraman.tif')" work. (IMREAD calls FOPEN under the hood.) Do you see different behavior?
Thanks for the rating. I programmed the GUI manually, without the use of GUIDE. You don't need a .fig file to run it. Just issue the command 'morphtool' (or 'morphtool(myimage)') to run it.
Fixed stability/responsiveness issue. Also adds support for a number of different morphological operations.

Including omitted StrelTool file.
22 Aug 2011
Changed the description only.
26 Sep 2011
Includes a missing subfunction.
09 Aug 2012
Flattened directory structure to avoid confusion. Replaced deprecated argument-checking functions, and added file-loading functionality when MorphTool is a child of a figure.
12 Sep 2012
Updated to include an App file for R2012b.
11 Mar 2013
Added in sound files.
11 Mar 2013
Several improvements/updates, including better loading of new images (from file or workspace); default 0-sized strel (this is desirable for large images); and incorporation of new ExpandAxes, which now allows right-click exporting of images!

Users of MorphTool may want to consider upgrading to ImageMorphology. I addressed many small issues in this version.
19 Aug 2015
A small bug fix in a portion of the generate code, plus better tooltips.
