Brighten or darken colormap
brighten increases or decreases the color intensities in a colormap. The modified colormap is brighter if
0 < beta < 1 and darker if
-1 < beta < 0.
replaces the current colormap with a brighter or darker colormap of essentially the same colors.
brighten(beta), followed by
beta < 1, restores the original map.
brightens all objects that are children of the figure having the handle
newmap = brighten(beta)
returns a brighter or darker version of the current colormap without changing the display.
newmap = brighten(cmap,beta)
returns a brighter or darker version of the colormap
cmap without changing the display.
Brighten and then darken the current colormap:
The values in the colormap are raised to the power of gamma, where gamma is
brighten has no effect on graphics objects defined with true color.
