If i have an array of type double, how can i convert it to uint8 and linearly stretch all the values such that min = 0 and max = 255 ? do I have too write my own code for this ? Would this be the correct code ?
K = (depth - min(depth(:)))/(max(depth(:)) - min(depth(:)))*255;

thanks ! but i think it truncates the values that are above the limit. Id like to perform a scaling operation as well.
