Hi all,
I have 2304x1024 matrix. I assume that each 3 rows of this matrix describe an image.(so I have 768 images and each image size = 3x1024 ). And want to plot it.
Can anyone help me with this please?

This code snippet extracts out the first image and plots it. Similarly you can extract the other images.
% Defining a random matrix for demo
matrix = rand(2304, 1024); % Use your matrix here
% Extract first 3 rows
image1 = matrix(1:3, :);
% Visualize
figure
imagesc(image1)

@Fatma Nur Disci the below code might work for you
% Defining a random matrix for demo
yourMatrix = rand(2304, 1024); % Use your matrix here
% Extract all images in a cell array
imagesArray = cell(768, 1);
ind = 1;
for idx = 1:3:2304
imagesArray{ind, 1} = yourMatrix(idx:idx+2, :);
ind = ind + 1;
end
% Visualize them all in one figure
figure
montage(imagesArray, 'BorderSize', 20)
colormap parula

Thanks I tried it, just gives me one picture.
I need to see 768 images seperately in a single figure(or table, window. I don't know what it is called.).
From image1 to image 768.

Let your 2304x1024 matrix be data. I'm assuming that you have to obtain these images successively in a single plot. If that is not the case, please specify how do you actually want to plot it.
for i=1:3:size(data,1)
for j=1:size(data, 2)
image(1,j) = data(i,j);
image(2,j) = data(i+1,j);
image(3,j) =data(i+2,j);
end
imagesc(image);
hold on;
end
Hope that helps!

Order is not important . Let's assume that imagesc(1:3, 1024 ) gives the first image, imagesc(4:6,1024) describes the second one and so on.
for ind=1:768
start= (ind-1)*3+1;
stop=ind*3;
data = wholedata(start:stop,:);
imagesc(data); %%%% or pcolor(data) or %%%% I = mat2gray(data) and imshow(I)
end
When I use plot instead of imagesc I can plot multiple graphs in one figure :
figure
for ind=1:768
start= (ind-1)*3+1;
stop=ind*3;
data = wholedata(start:stop,:);
subplot(1,768,ind);
plot(data);
hold on;
end
How to plot multiple images side by side in 1x768 format in a figure for example ? Or 32x24 format in a figure?

Hi Fatma,
Sorry for the late reply. I hope this can resolve your issue.
figure
position =1;
for ind=1:768
start= (ind-1)*3+1;
stop=ind*3;
data = wholedata(start:stop,:);
subplot(1,768,position);
imagesc(data);
hold on;
position = position+1;
end
Further, you can even use imshow and subplot for your functionality. I have never used it personally, so I'll just share the link where you can find more information on its impementation. Link!
Hope that helps!
