Hello all,
i try to insert a photo to axes in GUI. In these axes, only the image will be seen but the axis of the graph will not be visible. how can I do that?
if handles.POP_photo == 2

Doesn't imshow() do it?
ax1 = subplot(2,1,1);
ax2 = subplot(2,1,2);
imshow('Saturn_Hexagon.png'); % image showing in ax1; no lines or ticks showing in ax1

This is the default behavior when displaying an image in an axes. You can turn the axis back on using the following syntax: axis(handles.axes1,'on')
Here's an example of equivalent steps outside of a gui.
img = imread('peppers.png');
axis on

axis('on', 'image'); % Show tick marks and tick labels.
axis('off', 'image'); % Hide tick marks and tick labels.

To put an image onto a graph, see this demo:
% Draw a small image inset in the upper right corner of a larger plot.
% Ref:
clc; % Clear the command window.
close all; % Close all figures (except those of imtool.)
clear; % Erase all existing variables. Or clearvars if you want.
%workspace; % Make sure the workspace panel is showing.
format long g;
format compact;
fontSize = 18;
x = linspace(0, 1);
y1 = sin(2*pi*x);
% plot on large axes
plot(x, y1, 'LineWidth', 2)
grid on;
ax1 = gca; % Store handle to axes 1.
% Create smaller axes in top right, and plot on it
% Store handle to axes 2 in ax2.
ax2 = axes('Position',[.6 .6 .3 .3])
ax2 =
Axes with properties: XLim: [0 1] YLim: [0 1] XScale: 'linear' YScale: 'linear' GridLineStyle: '-' Position: [0.6 0.6 0.3 0.3] Units: 'normalized' Show all properties
box on;
fileName = 'peppers.png';
rgbImage = imread(fileName);
axis('on', 'image');
% Now draw something back on axis 1
hold(ax1, 'on'); % Don't blow away existing curve.
y2 = cos(2*pi*x/0.7);
plot(ax1, x, y2, 'r-', 'LineWidth', 2);
Other demos for insets are attached.
