how can i convert my image and excel file to get a working 2D VMD output?

6 views (last 30 days)
Hello, I am seeking guidance. I am kind of new to matlab and i want to see what the 2D VMD function/script does to my images/xlsx file for some interesting analysis. Can you please help me to get it to wrok? I tried the attached script by converting it from a xlsx file to a mat file then loading it into the script but it is NOT working and I can't get it to run successfully. PLEASE HELP and explain slowly thank you!!
Here's the code i used to convert from xlsx to mat file:
data = xlsread('DATASSHEET.xlsx');
save('DATASHEET.mat', 'data');
texture = load('DATASHEET.mat');
f =;
I also attached an excel file that is nearly identical to the numerical data that I will import and upload (ignore the letters). Please help me to figure this out!! I can not figure why its not working for my data after converting it to mat file. I just want to see what it outputs using the VMD_2D and/or VMD_2D_test.
I also have a jpg image that (attached) that I want to import into this code too (spoiler) can't get that one to work either. thanks for your suggestions! Please help!!

I don't want to care about VMD_2D.m, that's your part. But xlsread works fine, see Test.m:
data = xlsread(['DATAMATRIX.xlsx']);
save('DATAMATRIX.mat', 'data');
texture = load('DATAMATRIX.mat');
f =;
format long
format short

If you need the information of the first two columns also, use readtable or importdata.

@Image Analyst No, I have not. I am unsure if its because the VMD 2D is not suited for my images (i.e does it work well for my images) or am I better off using another VMD 2D code. What do you suggest? I am trying to see if using a fft would give me additional information about ym analysis that would be applicable to physiology.
