does work. you just have to put an image called rice.png into the folder.


Doesn't work (' (R2020a) Update 5')

I am really grateful for your example. However, when I was changing the axis limits I noticed that your functions are updating the position of the object in pixel units, but the position of the object should be updated in axis units. If my axis limits are [0,1] in both directions the slightest move shifts the object out of the axis limits.
