Hi, I'm trying to use the bitand function to drop the two least significant bits off of an image (basically forcing an 8-bit image to be displayed as 6 bit) using the bitand function. the code i'm using goes as
bubbles6 = bitand(bubbles , 252) ;
with 252 being the new assumed bit total (11111100 in binary since the two lowest are dropped), but the function keeps returning the erros message
'Error using bitand
Double inputs must have integer values in the range of ASSUMEDTYPE.'
Could someone explain what this means and why?

I just tried in R2021a pre-release that I happen to have installed on a drive.
bubbles = imread('flamingos.jpg');
bubbles6 = bitand(bubbles , 252, 'uint8') ;
worked fine.
In your code, put in a breakpoint at the bitand line. Then what shows up for
which bitand(bubbles)
