Raw data to image format conversion

Started by anujack_21 November 13, 2003
Hi all,

Can a raw data file be stored as an image file without any loss?

I read a raw data file into matlab using fread command( the file size
is around 35MB and is 12 bit precision).When I used imwrite to save
this raw data file to an image file, there was loss of data i.e, the
raw data file(35MB) and the .tiff file(17MB) were not of the same
size.And the presision of the .tiff file was only 8 bits as against
the raw data which was 12 bits.

I would like to know if there is a way in matlab to write the raw
data file to an image file without any kind of loss or compression.

Thanks in advance,
Anuradha Agatheeswaran.




Try imwrite with 'compression' option set to 'none'.
