Hello, I have RGB image dataset.I want to convert an image into patches and save each patch.How to do this in matlab. The patch size should be 64*64

Hi Tahir, try this:
imSz = size(I);
patchSz = [64 64];
xIdxs = [1:patchSz(2):imSz(2) imSz(2)+1];
yIdxs = [1:patchSz(1):imSz(1) imSz(1)+1];
patches = cell(length(yIdxs)-1,length(xIdxs)-1);
for i = 1:length(yIdxs)-1
Isub = I(yIdxs(i):yIdxs(i+1)-1,:);
for j = 1:length(xIdxs)-1
patches{i,j} = Isub(:,xIdxs(j):xIdxs(j+1)-1);
end
end
This produces a cell of your 64x64 patches:
>> patches
patches =
[64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8]
[64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8]
[64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8]
[64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8] [64x64 uint8]
And you can access each one:
figure, imagesc(patches{2,3})
Did that do what you wanted?
Thanks, Sven.

Hi! The code worked well. How can i recombine these patches to form an original image.

This is answered by the FAQ in two different ways (mat2cell and indexing). Take your pick as to which is easier, more convenient, and intuitive for you.

I do have a version of blockproc() that uses a separate function, where you can do more complicated operations than in an anonymous function. It is attached.
There is also a function called graycoprops() that you may want instead of graycomatrix(). It gives you key features from the GLCM matrix.

hello. its work well on 256 by 256 image but i have 512 by 512 image. it gives the following error. Index exceeds matrix dimensions.
