hi, is this same concept for horizontal projection profile (HPP) and vertical projection profile (VPP)?? HPP & VPP are the step for creating a unoform block of text in preprocessing step for image. I have tried using RemoveWhiteSpace function but it's not working. TQ

Thanks Richard,

I will add Image Processing Toolbox to the requirements for now.

Appears to require Image Processing Toolbox or some internal rewriting to eliminate mat2gray and rgb2gray.
