%IMOVERLAY Create Label Matrix MAP based Image Overlay with specified Properties.
% RGB = IMOVERLAY(X,MAP) generates an output image RGB by overlaying a
% label matrix MAP onto the input image X with default parameter values.
%
% RGB = IMOVERLAY(X,MAP,PARAM1,VAL1,PARAM2,VAL2,___) overlays a label
% matrix MAP onto the input image X, specifying parameters and
% corresponding values that control various aspects of the output image
% RGB.
%
% Class Support
% -------------
% The input image X and label matrix MAP can be uint8, uint16, or double.
% The label matrix MAP must contain finite nonnegative integers.
% The output RGB is an M-by-N-by-3 array of class uint8.
%
% PROPERTIES can be a comma-separated list of strings
% 'ColorMap' - colormap (default 'jet')
% 'FaceAlpha' - MAP transparency (range [0,1], default 1 denotes opacity)
% if equals to -1, the following five properties will be ignored
% 'ZeroColor' - background color (uint8/double, default black)
% 'ZeroAlpha' - background transparency (range [0,1], default 1 denotes opacity)
% 'EdgeColor' - edge color (uint8/double, default white)
% 'EdgeAlpha' - edge transparency (range [0,1], default 1 denotes opacity)
% 'EdgeWidth' - edge width (default 1)
%
% Example 1
% ---------
% RGB = imoverlay(X,map);
%
% Example 2
% ---------
% RGB = imoverlay(X,map,'colormap',cmap,'facealpha',0.5,'zerocolor',[255 0 0],'zeroalpha',0.3,'edgewidth',5,'edgecolor',[1 1 0],'edgealpha',0.7);
%
% Example 3
% ---------
% RGB = imoverlay(X,map,'facealpha',-1,'colormap','jet');
%
%
% Reference ('FaceAlpha' equals to -1):
