I have an image that I must flip using a nested for loop to flip the image vertically and horizontally, I have written a code that I think works but there is something wrong with it that it isn't. What have I done wrong?
%make 2d arrays values
[row, column] =size(imageData)
newImage=[]
%Use nested loops to change image mirrored
for i=[row:-1:1];
for j=[column:-1:1];
transposedMatrix(column, row) = imageData(i,j);
transposedMatrix
end
end
imshow(transposedMatrix)

flipped both vertically and horizontally
Well, a flip instruction would be more like exchanging position i with row - i and j with column - j

The are a few problems with your code. First, if you want the image, you dont want to transpose. That will flip and rotate, As adam has pointed out, column and row, you arent actuall transposing anyway. A better and correct way to transpose is to use permute.
newImage = permute(imageData, [2 1 3]);
imshow(newImage);
To actually flip, you should be able to use the flip function
newImage = flip(imageData,1);
newImage = flip(newImage,2);
imshow(newImage);

I that case . . .
%make 2d arrays values
[row, column] = size(imageData);
%Use nested loops to change image mirrored
for i=[1:row]
for j=[1:column]
newImage((row-i)+1, (column-j)+1) = imageData(i,j);
end
end
imshow(newImage)
You dont want to transpose rows and colums, you want to flip the the indexes within rows and columns.

Thats exactly what I was doing wrong, thankyou!
