Hi, I want a 2d array of rows and columns filled with floating point numbers (matrix) which can be converted to a grayscale image.

Should i use the mat2gray function of matlab ? I want to program my own image and fill it with numbers.

Thanks Walter. So is it possible to use multiple loops in the same matrix to have different pixels ? I mean instead of one repmat i need multiple repmats for the same matrix A.

Hello Anvinder,
I understand that you are looking to display a grayscale image based on values from a matrix. As jgg said, "mat2gray" helps in ensuring that the matrix values get scaled appropriately (between 0 and 1) to display the full range in an image.
You don't need to use "repmat" to create the grayscale image, that was just an example. Here's an example that uses loops to allow for calculating each pixel value:
nRows = 10;
nCols = 15;
A = zeros(nRows,nCols);
for r = 1:nRows
for c = 1:nCols
A(r,c) = r+c/2;
I = mat2gray(A);
I hope this helps!
