how can i combine 8*8 blocks into image after inserting text in each block?

4 views (last 30 days)
i have an image and i divite it into 8*8 blocks afterthat i have inserted text in each block,now i have to recombine these blocks to form proper image..plz suggest me the code...
clear all;
close all;
fontSize = 20;
folder = fullfile(matlabroot, '\toolbox\images\imdemos');
baseFileName = 'lena.png';
fullFileName = fullfile(folder, baseFileName);
%fullFileName = fullfile(folder, baseFileName);
if ~exist(fullFileName, 'file')
fullFileName = baseFileName;
if ~exist(fullFileName, 'file')
errorMessage = sprintf('Error: %s does not exist.', fullFileName);
figure,imshow ('lena.png');
a = imread(fullFileName);
a = imresize(a, [64 64]);
[rows columns numberOfColorBands] = size(a);
ca = mat2cell(a,8*ones(1,size(a,1)/8),8*ones(1,size(a,2)/8),3);
plotIndex = 1;
for c = 1 : size(ca, 2)
for r = 1 : size(ca, 1)
fprintf('c=%d, r=%d\n', c, r);
Text = sprintf('M');
H = vision.TextInserter(Text);
H.Color = [0.0 0.0 0];
H.FontSize = 3;
b = step(H,ca{r,c});
% imshow(b);
c1(8*(c-1)+1:8*c,8*(r-1)+1:8*r,:) = b;
plotIndex = plotIndex + 1;
if true
% code
% gh= imagerestore(a); if true
% code

You have code that almost works, pending a linear transformation; I would suggest trying the 2-step recipe,
  1. Build the mosaic image and record the co-ordinates for text() command in gobal reference axis as oppose to the local reference axis.
  2. Once all 8x8 mosaics are layed out on the figure, start adding text() command data at the (x,y) global positions you had recorded.

Have you considered using blockproc() instead the looping over mat2cell() ?
Also you would normally create your vision.TextInserter object before your loop and call it once on each block.
