Image Display and Exploration Overview

The Image Processing Toolbox software includes two display functions, imshow and imtool, that optimize the image display.

Image Types in the Toolbox

The Image Processing Toolbox software supports four fundamental image types: binary, indexed, grayscale, and truecolor.

What Is an Image Sequence?

An image sequence is a collection of images related by time, such as frames in a movie, or by spatial location, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) slices.
