Examples and How To

Get Pixel Information in Image Viewer App

To determine the location and value of individual pixels in an image, use the Pixel Region tool of the Image Viewer app.

Measure Distance Between Pixels in Image Viewer

To measure distance between pixels, use the Distance tool of the Image Viewer app.

Labeling and Measuring Objects in a Binary Image

Describes functions that return information about a binary image

Create Image Histogram

This example shows how to create a histogram for an image using the imhist function.

Image Mean, Standard Deviation, and Correlation Coefficient

To compute standard statistics of an image, use the two-dimensional mean2, std2, and corr2 functions.

Calculate Region Properties Using Image Region Analyzer

This example shows how to calculate the properties of regions in binary images using the Image Region Analyzer app.


Pixel Values

To determine the values of one or more pixels in an image and return the values in a variable, use theimpixel function.

Image Region Properties

A region in an image can have properties, such as an area, center of mass, orientation, and bounding box.

Distance Transform

Describes how to use the bwdist function to compute the distance transform of an image

Intensity Profile of Images

The intensity profile of an image is the set of intensity values taken from regularly spaced points. To create an intensity profile, use the improfile function.

Contour Plot of Image Data

A contour is a path in an image along which the intensity values are constant. To create a contour plot of a grayscale image, use the imcontour function.

Correct Nonuniform Background Illumination and Analyze Foreground Objects

This example shows how to enhance an image as a preprocessing step before analysis.
