When a colleague below runs the code attached, they claim to get a figure 4 with a color scheme that look likes attached image 1. When I run the exact same conde on MATLAB online, I get firgure 4 that looks like attached image 2. I cannot figure why this is and need my code's figure 4 output too look like that in image 1.

You're using imagesc(), which I hate and never use because it applies default colormaps that you never asked for. The one image you had uses the "jet" colormap, which was the default before release 2014b, and the other image uses parula which is the current default colormap. I suggest you use imshow() and/or colormap() and apply whatever colormap YOU want instead of using the default.

I don't think it changed, but you can print it out and check it
jet(256) % No semicolon so it will print to command window.
or however many colors you think there are.
