If I have an image of size M by N then how can I do the square of each pixel individually?

outImage = zeros(size(inputImage));
for i = 1 : size(inputImage, 1)
for j = 1 : size(inputImage, 2)
outImage(i, j) = inputImage(i,j)^2;

It worked with using ones instead of zeros in the first line.. putImage = ones(size(inputImage));
Anyway thanks for the help.

hi, why doesnt this algorithm work for a gray image? I am getting only 255

Because if the value goes above 255, it clips to 255. You'll have to use uint16 or double. And don't use a for loop like this answer did. Use dot caret instead:
outImage = double(inputImage) .^ 2; % or uint16()
