Maybe this is a dumb question... is "my foto" some kind of app, or did you mean to say "one of my photographs/images"? – gnovice Dec 7 '09 at 22:21

I work for MathWorks and recently made a video about inserting an image into a MATLAB GUI. You can view the video on the MATLAB blog.


This is one of many ways to insert an image in a MATLAB GUI:

function hello_world
fig1=figure(  'Name','Figure with a Background Image','Menu','none', ... NumberTitle','off','Unit','normalized', ... 'Position',[.45 .45 .1 .1]);
load mandrill
image(X);colormap(map); %   <-- Plotting the image in the background...
set(gca,'position',[0 0 1 1]);%   <-- It would be ideal to explicitly specify the axis handle here...
axis off; axis equal

button1=uicontrol(fig1,'Style','pushbutton','Unit','Normalized', ... 'Position',[.2 .1 .6 .4],'String','Close','Callback',{@action_Callback});

function action_Callback(~,~)
    % On an earlier version of MATLAB, type:
    % function action_Callback(a,b)
    % instead, for example...

Can't say much with your description, but you'll want to look at
