I have this image (2848 x 4288) and i want to divide it into 9 blocks and perform some operations on individual or each block. For example i perform this operations on an image:;
y = rgb2gray(imresize(imread('DSC_0009.jpg'),.2));
z = 255.0 - 1.0 * double(y);
z = z ./5 ;
z2 = imfilter(z, fspecial('average', 15));
z2(z2 > 35) = 35;
z2(z2 < 30) = 0;
shading interp;
axis ij;
axis tight;
I want to do a similar operation on each of the blocks and output it as well.
thank you.

See the FAQ for code to perform it two different ways, normal indexing, and the cell2mat() function:

You can also use blockproc() if you don't need to store the subimages but just need to perform some operation on them and give you an output image. See attached demos for a variety of ways to use blockproc().

I don't know. I've never used blender. However using fwrite() or fprintf() you can create any file you want.
