I'm looking to remove a region from images. For example, I'd like to use freehand as shown in the image and delete that portion of the image, i.e., turn it in to white because some unpredictable regions like that are troublesome. I'd like to use it for as many time as necessary. I looked into roi, but it turns entire image black and the selected region white. Also, how can you make sure freehand is enclosed. Would you require both ends of the freehand going inside, so you're always sure it is enclosed. Will freehand be always enclosed? Looks like there is a small gap between two ends.
Thanks for the help!

That is exactly what my freehand masking demo does. It's attached below in blue.

Don't use clear or clearvars or clearall in a GUI, and don't use evalin() - there's never a need to do that. That is what is causing problems. If your axes have more than one image, then call cla('reset') before you call imshow().
