Translate an Image using imtranslate Function

This example shows how to perform a translation operation on an image using the imtranslate function. A translation operation shifts an image by a specified number of pixels in either the x- or y-direction, or both.

Read an image into the workspace.

I = imread('cameraman.tif');

Display the image. The size of the image is 256-by-256 pixels. By default, imshow displays the image with the upper right corner at (0,0).

imshow(I)
title('Original Image')

Translate the image, shifting the image by 15 pixels in the x-direction and 25 pixels in the y-direction. Note that, by default, imtranslate displays the translated image within the boundaries (or limits) of the original 256-by-256 image. This results in some of the translated image being clipped.

J = imtranslate(I,[15, 25]);

Display the translated image. The size of the image is 256-by-256 pixels.

Use the 'OutputView' parameter set to 'full' to prevent clipping the translated image. The size of the new image is 281-by-271 pixels.

K = imtranslate(I,[15, 25],'OutputView','full');

Display the translated image.
