Why don't you just use a relative path? imread('images\2.jpg')

I copied this from gui code I had for a callback. my callbacks are in a different folder an I didn't want to write to the folder containing my callbacks, so I didn't want the relative path.

This will create one in the working directory
foldername='newfoldername'
mkdir([pwd '\' foldername])
