2 views (last 30 days)
i'm trying to save an image to a specific folder, however when i save the image i would like to give it any name i want.
similar to saving a word document, and a dialogue box pops up and asks you where would you like the destination folder and the name of the file

Use uiputfile to get the file name and path, e.g. where I is your image array:
[F,P] = uiputfile();

Try this fix
if ~contains(F, '.tif', 'IgnoreCase', true)
% User did not enter the .tif extension. add it for them.
F = [F, '.tif']; % Append .tif
fullFileName = fullfile(P, F);
imwrite(I, fullFileName);

You can use imsave():
img = imread('peppers.png');
imshow(img); % Display image
[filename, user_canceled] = imsave();
Or else the longer way with uiputfile():
% Get the name of the file that the user wants to save.
% Note, if you're saving an image you can use imsave() instead of uiputfile().
startingFolder = userpath % Or "pwd" or wherever you want.
defaultFileName = fullfile(startingFolder, '*.*');
[baseFileName, folder] = uiputfile(defaultFileName, 'Specify a file');
if baseFileName == 0
% User clicked the Cancel button.
fullFileName = fullfile(folder, baseFileName)
imwrite(yourImage, fullFileName);
