At the moment when I display the image with imshow the y axis are logically set with the origin at the top. I would like to know if there is a way of setting the origin at the bottom but without flipping the image. If I use
The origin is at the bottom but the image is flipped.
I am using ecography images, so I can't use imagesc.
Thanks in advance.

I don't understand what you want. Do you have tick labels but want the tick labels flipped but the image not flipped? If so use yticklabels()
grayImage = imread('cameraman.tif');
axis on;
[rows, columns, numberOfColorChannels] = size(grayImage)
yTickNumbers = rows - yticks
for k = 1 : length(yTickNumbers)
ytl{k} = sprintf('%3d', yTickNumbers(k));

Yes, I want the image like that. But changing the Y tick labels only changes the labels or does it change the labels and the y values? I mean, in your image looking at the axis labels the point (50,56) (right leg) and I get this point with ginput, would the plotted point, in cartesian coordinates logically, be (50,56)?
