Indexing to make an image in MATLAB 1

Posted by Doug Hull,

I got a quick question today on how to make a diamond appear on an image in MATLAB. This is really an exercise in indexing and for loops in MATLAB. Let’s see how you can make an image in MATLAB.

And a few Image Processing approaches:

%% Some info:
% These have the convience of being easy to make multiple diamonds. Simply
% turn any spot you want to have a diamond to be true.

sz = [11 11];
r = 3;

%% Use BWDIST
% Anywhere within the range of our true point will be on.

I = false(sz); %false matrix
I(ceil(sz(1)./2),ceil(sz(2)./2)) = true; %center (or wherever) is true.
D = bwdist(I,’cityblock’)<=r; %true points are equal or closer than r in cityblock distance xform
imagesc(D); %view it

%% Use IMDILATE
% Take our solo point and expand it
%

I = false(sz); %false matrix
I(ceil(sz(1)./2),ceil(sz(2)./2)) = true; %center (or wherever) is true.
D = imdilate(I,strel('diamond',r)); %Dilate with a diamond stucturing element.
imagesc(D); %view it
