Hi, I am new to MATLAB and need some help. I have 2000 TIF images (located in a folder with names F_001, F_002,.....F_2000) and I want to draw four horizontal lines on all the images. The given coordinates are in image system.
Position of line 1: [x1,x2]=[0,1024] and [y1,y2]=[760,760]. I want to write text "predator location" on top of this line
Position of line 2: [x1,x2]=[0,1024] and [y1,y2]=[500,500]. I want to write text "safe distance" on top of this line.
so are the lines 3 and 4.
How can I do this in a loop using MATLAB. Also, I want to have control over the type of line and the color. Can someone please, help me with this.

Images=dir('C:\complate_path\folder_name\*.tif');
outDirectory='C:\complate_path\folder_name_to_save\';
for i=1:length(Images)
ImgName=strcat('C:\complate_path\folder_name\',Images(i).name);
image_test=imread(ImgName);
imshow(image_test);
line([0 760],[1024 760],'linewidth',3);
line([0 500],[1024 500],'r','linewidth',3);
% so are the lines 3 and 4........
fig=gcf
imwrite(fig,strcat(outDirectory,Images(i).name));
end
I want to have control over the type of line and the color. Can someone please, help me with this.

"I want to loop through all the 2000 images in the folder"
I provided the answer
"Is it possible top add some text on top of the line?"
Yes!
result_image=insertText(image,position,text);

I don't know much about MATLAB. I used your code and got this error.
Error using imwrite (line 427)
Expected DATA to be one of these types:
numeric, logical
Instead its type was matlab.ui.Figure.
