sir,actually i want to obtain the covarience matrix of all these read images...for same i wrote a code but there i worked on each image seperatly (i.e. reading convrting to gray and the resized it) because of which code became verry bulky ,now with your guidlines i modified sem for loop reading. now what i supposed to do is 1st i should convert it to gray and then resize all..but fact is yet i didnot reached to covarience matrix stage...:( apologize me for mistake if any

Use the builtin cov to get the covariance matrix.

You can rename all images like..im1,im2,im3.....im100. To read 100 images one by one, run a loop 100 times with i as variable from 1 to 100 and in imread, m=imread(['folder_path\im' num2str(i) '.jpg']). I hope I answered your question.

for i=1:16; % we have 16 images we have in or folder
images ='C:\Users\Haseeb\Desktop\input\for_loop_input';
Here is the simple and short code, which will acces your images from your folder in a sequence.

Actually it gives error as
Array indices must be positive integers or logical values.
n=numel(jpgfiles(i)); // for this line.
will you tell me why ?

You can do this easily..... before doing this program, you have to keep all of your image in a folder and rename them by any common char+number concatenation form (like a1.jpg, a2.jpg,a3.jpg....). after that you just use strcat() function for reading the path name, and then read the images.
for i=1:10 %suppose there are 10 image
file_name=dir(strcat('J:\multimedia\photo\')); % the path tht u hv imges
