If none of the figures currently open contains an image, then imgcf creates a new figure.

I = imread('strawberries.jpg');

Use the handle of a figure containing an Image Tool window to center the window on the screen.

sz = get(groot,'ScreenSize');
pos = get(imgcf,'Position');
pos = [(sz(3)-pos(3))/2 (sz(4)-pos(4))/2 pos(3) pos(4)];
