Sorry for any confusion. Simply click on you figure then run the fig2img function from the command line. Below are some example usages.

Example 1: Use "fig2img" to save figure to image file using 300dpi.

Example 2: Use "fig2img(600,1)" to save figure at 600 dpi using the current figure size/dimensions.

I previously uploaded the .asm file and not the .m file. I also changed the usage details some. No changes were made to the code.
