The toolbox provides several functions for viewing image data and volumes. To understand all the toolbox image display capabilities, see Image Display and Exploration Overview.
Display Images and Image Sequences
Image Display in a Figure Window
The toolbox automatically sets the properties of graphics objects to optimize image display.
You can display grayscale, RGB, indexed, and binary images in a figure window. Each element of image data is displayed on a single screen pixel.
You can display multiple images in separate figure windows or individually in the same figure window. You can create a composite of two images for easier comparison.
You can display truecolor, grayscale, binary, and indexed images in a figure window or in the interactive Image Viewer app.
Print images to use them in a word processing program or graphics editor.
You can view and edit preferences to control how images are displayed on your screen by default.
Interactive Image Display
You can display, explore, and process images interactively with Image Viewer app.
You can animate image sequences using the Video Viewer app. Explore the image sequence with playback, panning, and zooming controls.
You can create a movie from an image sequence of truecolor or indexed images. Movies can be played in the MATLAB® environment or written to a video file.
You can view perpendicular cross-sections of 3-D volumetric data using the Volume Viewer app. Adjust the rendering to reveal structures within the volume.
You can view 3-D labeled volumetric data using the Volume app. You can view the volume and the labeled volume simultaneously and change the opacity and colormap.
