Hi,
How do I resize the images below so they are all the one size?
function [Edges, Ihor, Iver] = edgeExtraction(Iin,B1,B2)
Iin = im2double(Iin);
% Iver = Iin .* B1;
% Ihor = Iin .* B2;
% Edges = edge(Iin);
Ihor = conv2(Iin, B2);
Iver = conv2(Iin, B1);
Edges = sqrt((Iver.^2) + (Ihor.^2));
subplot(1,4,2), imagesc(Ihor), title('Horizontal')
subplot(1,4,3), imagesc(Iver), title('Vertical')
subplot(1,4,4), imagesc(Edges), title('Edges')
end
clear all
close all
B1 = [-1 0 1; -1 0 1; -1 0 1];
B2 = [-1 -1 -1; 0 0 0; 1 1 1];
figure(1)
subplot(1,4,1), imshow(boatN), title('Boat');
edgeExtraction(boatN, B1, B2)

Hi Aaron,
As a workaround, you can first resize all the images using MATLAB function “imresize” to a definite size and then add them into the figure using a subplot and "imagesc".
Hope this Helps!

imagesc() accepts properties 'XData' and 'YData', or you can pass x and y coordinates as the first two parameters to imagesc()
The x you pass should be a vector of two values, the first is the data x coordinate for the center of the lower-left pixel, and the second is the data x coordinate for the center of the upper-right pixel. Likewise for the y, and again the values are data coordinates for centers.
This does not resize the image in the sense of changing the number of pixels in the image array: this instead tells MATLAB where to draw the image, with the image being visually expanded or compacted as necessary in order to fit those data coordinates.

clc; clear all; close all;
B1 = [-1 0 1; -1 0 1; -1 0 1];
B2 = [-1 -1 -1; 0 0 0; 1 1 1];
figure(1)
subplot(1,4,1), imshow(boatN), title('Boat');
edgeExtraction(boatN, B1, B2)
function [Edges, Ihor, Iver] = edgeExtraction(Iin,B1,B2)
if ndims(Iin) > 2
Iin = rgb2gray(Iin);
end
Iin = im2double(Iin);
% Iver = Iin .* B1;
% Ihor = Iin .* B2;
% Edges = edge(Iin);
Ihor = conv2(Iin, B2);
Iver = conv2(Iin, B1);
Edges = sqrt((Iver.^2) + (Ihor.^2));
subplot(1,4,2), imagesc(Ihor), title('Horizontal')
axis equal
axis tight
subplot(1,4,3), imagesc(Iver), title('Vertical')
axis equal
axis tight
subplot(1,4,4), imagesc(Edges), title('Edges')
axis equal
axis tight
end
