losing CData after replotting image in subplot ?
2 views (last 30 days)
I am making a montage of image panels, which look like BW but are not binary.
I am then taking the CData of the montage and , using imagesc, I would like to recolorize my image
so I set the proper x,y size (obtained from montage object) and add the montage CData info.
in a new figure I obtain the desired colored montage. In the same subplot panel no. Even after clearing or removing the montage.
why is that ?
adding a color map makes the image binary. I add the line just for testing
cdata = mo.CData;,cla(ax325)

By default, colormap() applies to the whole figure. You can make it apply to a specific axes by passing the handle of the axes.
When you ask for the cdata property of an image that has been colorized using colormap, you get the data that is held in the object, not the colorized version of the data.
The easiest way to extract the rgb being displayed by a colormapped object is to use the File Exchange contribution freezecolors() and then extract the cdata.
