# How can i slip and rotate a color image?

Asked by Carole on 28 Nov 2012

Hi,how can i slip and rotate the color image img like the binary image bw?

```I=imread('image.jpg'); %color image
bw=segmentation(I); % the result is a binary image where the object detected (ROI) is white
img = bsxfun(@times, I, cast(bw,class(I)));
phy = regionprops(bw, 'Orientation')
[barx,bary]=barycentre(edge);
% slip the region to the center of the image
edge = recentre(edge,barx,bary);
I2 = recentre(bw,barx,bary);
phy1=phy.Orientation;
edge=imrotate(edge,-phy,'loose');
I3=imrotate(I2,-phy,'loose');
```

thanks

Why isn't imrotate working for you?

For more fancy transformations, look into imtransform.

Carole on 28 Nov 2012

The function recenter and imrotate work with the binary image bw where the ROI is centred and rotated very well but when i want to center and rotate the ROI of the color image img it doesn't work :( . I couldn't use imtransform to center the region and rotate the image with a given angle -phy

use imrotate after separating rgb planes and after that combine those 3 planes

Have you tried circshift() to slide the image over?

Image Analyst on 30 Nov 2012

Okay - I've edited it for you to let the user click on a point that she wants to move to the center of the image. Show the older comments above to get the edited code. Let me know if that works for you. With circshift, the edge of the image wraps around, which should not be a problem if it's black. If you want the stuff shifted out of the image to be cut off and the stuff shifted in to be black (instead of from the opposite side of the image) then it's an easy adaptation that you can do.

thanks it works with some modifications knowing that I want to move the centroid of the object to the center of the image

imrotate can rotate color images just fine:

```imshow(imrotate(imread('peppers.png'),42,'crop'))
```

It seems that the problem is in the function recentre because it works with the binary image bw but it doesn't work with the color image img

```I=imread('image.jpg'); %color image
bw=segmentation(I); % the result is a binary image where the object detected (ROI) is white
img = bsxfun(@times, I, cast(bw,class(I)));
edge2 = edge(bw, 'prewitt');
edge2 = 1 - edge2;
[barx,bary]=barycentre(edge2);
edge2 = recentre(edge2,barx,bary);
I2 = recentre(bw,barx,bary);
I3 = recentre(img,barx,bary);
```

The function

```function im_trans=recentre(image,barx,bary)
```
```[X,Y]=size(image);
```
```tx=floor(X/2)-barx;
ty=floor(Y/2)-bary;
```
```im_trans = zeros(X, Y);
```
```if tx>=0
if ty>=0
for i=1 : X-tx
for j=1 : Y-ty
im_trans(i+tx, j+ty) = image(i, j);
end
end
elseif ty<0
for i=1 : X-tx
for j=abs(ty)+1 : Y
im_trans(i+tx, j+ty) = image(i, j);
end
end
end
```
```elseif tx<0
if ty>=0
for i=abs(tx)+1 : X
for j=1 : Y-ty
im_trans(i+tx, j+ty) = image(i, j);
end
end
elseif ty<0
for i=abs(tx)+1 : X
for j=abs(ty)+1 : Y
im_trans(i+tx, j+ty) = image(i, j);
end
end
end
end
can you help me to correct it please
```
