How to calculate the mean of an image? Does the code mean2(img) give the right result?

To calculate the mean of all pixels in the image, without regard to what color channel they came from (if it's a color image), you do
meanIntensity = mean(img(:));
What you did will not do it, as I'm sure you found out.

It could be the same if the image was gray since the blue and green channel would be identical to the red channel. It would also be the same for lots of other cases, like where the green and blue channels are scrambled (spatially rearranged) versions of the red channel since they would have the same pixel values regardless of how they're rearranged.
