save images in a new folder

4 views (last 30 days)
I am using the below subroutine inside for loop to save images during every itertaion. Here, I would like to save the images in new folder. Please help me with this...
if (f>=1) && (f<=9)
saveas(gcf, sprintf('S0000%d', f), 'bmp')
elseif (f>=10) && (f<=99)
saveas(gcf, sprintf('S000%d', f), 'bmp');
elseif (f>=100) && (f<=999)
saveas(gcf, sprintf('S00%d', f), 'bmp');
saveas(gcf, sprintf('S0%d', f), 'bmp');

prefix = '\\new\\';
thisBaseFileName = sprintf('%sS%4.5d.png',prefix, f);

Have two folders:
inputFolder = 'D:\CH\';
outputFolder = 'D:\CH\new\';
if ~isfolder(outputFolder)
Then in the loop
fname = fullfile(inputFolder, fname); % Create full input filename.
thisBaseFileName = sprintf('S%4.5d.png', f); % Base output file name.
fullFileName = fullfile(outputFolder, thisBaseFileName); % Create full output filename in different folder.
Not sure why you removed the folder from my call to fullfile() in my answer. You should not have done that. fullfile() needs both a folder and a base file name.

Thanks it worked perfectly..
Furthermore, regarding my previous query on "having two colorbars in the contours for the images read in .im7 format". I have sent the .im7 files and loadvec function as per your request. Is .im7 readable now ???

Do it this way:
folder = pwd % Wherever you want...
for k = 1 : 1234
thisBaseFileName = sprintf('S%4.4d.png', k);
fullFileName = fullfile(thisBaseFileName);
fprintf('Saving %s\n', fullFileName);
% saveas() of exportgraphics()

saveas(gcf, sprintf('/folder/S0000%d.bmp', f))

Is 'f' here represents the folder destination ??

No, /folder/ is, but use Image Analyst's solution, it's much better than what you have.
