ind2gray

Convert indexed image to grayscale image

Syntax

I = ind2gray(X,cmap)

Description

example

I = ind2gray(X,cmap) converts the indexed image X with colormap cmap to a grayscale image, I. The ind2gray function removes the hue and saturation information from the input image while retaining the luminance.

Examples

collapse all

Load an indexed image into the workspace.

[X, map] = imread('trees.tif');

Convert the image to grayscale using ind2gray.

I = ind2gray(X,map);

Display the indexed image and the converted grayscale image.

imshow(X,map)
title('Indexed Image')

figure
imshow(I)
title('Converted Grayscale Image')

Input Arguments

collapse all

Indexed image, specified as a numeric array of any size and dimensionality.

Data Types: single | double | uint8 | uint16

Color map associated with indexed image X, specified as a c-by-3 numeric array, where c is the number of colors.

Data Types: double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Grayscale image, specified as a numeric array. I has the same size, dimensionality and class as X.

Algorithms

ind2gray converts the colormap to NTSC coordinates using rgb2ntsc, and sets the hue and saturation components (I and Q) to zero, creating a gray colormap. ind2gray then replaces the indices in the image X with the corresponding grayscale intensity values in the gray colormap.
