I am using
1. folder_name = uigetdir('C:\Users\Student\Documents\MATLAB\matlab program folder')
2. dirNamev =('C:\Users\Student\Documents\MATLAB\matlab program folder\9.15\*.jpg');
filesv = dir(dirNamev);
to get the folder name, but form 1---> it gives me only "C:\Users\Student\Documents\MATLAB\matlab program folder\9.15". 9.15 is a folder containing set of 11 images. My aim is to get a 11x1 struct as in --->form 2. I want to go for 1st method because the folder may change every time and user may need to make a change. Please help me with some ideas.

folder_name = uigetdir('C:\Users\Student\Documents\MATLAB\matlab program folder');
filesv = dir(fullfile(folder_name, '*.jpg'));

you can concatenate the character '\':
folder_name = [folder_name '\'];
or you can do:
fullfile(folder_name, filesv(1).name)

[fname, pname] = uigetfile({'*.jpg','*.jpeg'})
