How do I generate just the red channel, from the colourful image that I have attached below?

Sorry I don't see your image. Did you attach it? Also it would be good if you could please provide the actual data that you are plotting not just the image

After reading the image properly, you can separate the channels using this code segment.
a_red=a(:,:,1); %RED channel
a_green=a(:,:,2); %GREEN channel
a_blue=a(:,:,3); %BLUE channel
figure;imshow(a);title('Color Image');
figure;imshow(a_red);title('Red Channel');
figure;imshow(a_green);title('Green Channel');
figure;imshow(a_blue);title('Blue Channel');
Now, you can also save each channel as separate image using ‘imwrite’ function. Hope this will help.
