Specifying the Initial Image Magnification
imtool function attempts to display an image in its entirety at 100% magnification (one screen pixel for each image pixel). Unlike
imtool always honors the specified numeric magnification, showing only a portion of the image if it is too big to fit in a figure on the screen and adding scroll bars to allow navigation to parts of the image that are not currently visible. If the specified magnification would make the image too large to fit on the screen,
imtool scales the image to fit, without issuing a warning. This is the default behavior, specified by the
'InitialMagnification' parameter value
To override this default initial magnification behavior for a particular call to
imtool, specify the
InitialMagnification parameter. For example, to view an image at 150% magnification, use this code.
You can also specify the text string
'fit' as the initial magnification value. In this case,
imtool scales the image to fit the default size of a figure window.
You can also change the default initial magnification behavior of
imtool by setting the
ImtoolInitialMagnification toolbox preference. The magnification value you specify affects every call to
imtool for the current MATLAB session. To make this preference persist between sessions, include the command to set the preference in your
startup.m file. To learn more about toolbox preferences, see Setting the Values of Toolbox Preferences.
imtool scales an image, it uses interpolation to determine the values for screen pixels that do not directly correspond to elements in the image matrix. For more information, see Interpolation.
