I used the code provided by Image Analyst to plot multiple RGB histograms in one figure, the result is shown in the following figure.
I want plot a new histogram based on the overlaid histograms. I don't know how to put it in words about what I want to do but it is something like this...
I'm not sure how to do it. Can anyone help me please?

The code is from Image Analyst, named 'RGB_Histogram_Demo', I grabbed it from one of his Answers. The histograms are actually histogram of red, green and blue color channels of the same image. I read one image and extract the RGB. I want to know how do I plot/highlight only the un-overlapped part like the dark line in the second figure.

Image = imread('001.bmp');
Red = Image(:,:,1);
Green = Image(:,:,2);
Blue = Image(:,:,3);
[pixelCountRed grayLevels] = imhist(Red, 256);
[pixelCountGreen grayLevels] = imhist(Green, 256);
[pixelCountBlue grayLevels] = imhist(Blue, 256);
plot(pixelCountRed, 'r');
hold on;
plot(pixelCountGreen, 'g');
plot(pixelCountBlue, 'b');
Until this point, it will develop a plot with three histogram in one figure, as shown in figure above. May I know how do I plot the maximum lines of the histogram so it shows one graph with six peaks (as in the example figure)?
