Image Sequences and Batch Processing
An image sequence is a collection of images related by time, such as frames in a movie, or by spatial location, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) slices. Image sequences are also known as image stacks or videos.
You can store an image sequence as a multidimensional array, then display and process the sequence using toolbox functions that can operate on multidimensional arrays. You can also store an image sequence as a collection of individual image files, then process the files using the Image Batch Processor app.

- Work with Image Sequences as Multidimensional Arrays
Concatenate individual images in an image sequences into a single multidimensional array for ease of display and processing.
- View Image Sequences in Video Viewer
Animate image sequences using the Video Viewer app. Explore the image sequence with playback, panning, and zooming controls.
- Process Folder of Images Using Image Batch Processor App
This example shows how to use the Image Batch Processor app to process a batch of images in a folder or datastore.
- Process Large Set of Images Using MapReduce Framework and Hadoop
This example shows how to execute a cell counting algorithm on a large number of images using Image Processing Toolbox™ with MATLAB® MapReduce and datastores.
