getNewImage(convertToDouble)
function [img,cmap,fname,fpath,userCanceled] = getNewImage(convertToDouble)
% Prompt for new image from file or workspace
%
% SYNTAX:
% [img,map,fname,fpath,userCanceled] = getNewImage(convertToDouble)
%
% INPUTS:
% convertToDouble: Binary (default = false)
% OUTPUTS:
% img, cmap: Image and corresponding colormap
% fname, fpath: filename, file path
% userCanceled: Logical, indicating whether the user canceled the operation
%
% Incorporates Scott Hirsch's UIGETVARIABLES
