HI , im supposed to make a function
function [] = paste ( smallimage, bigimage, centerxy)
which returns the small image pasted onto the big image placed at [ x ,y] location center xy. the smallerimage is copied to overlay part of the big image, it will appear inside the bigimage and cover some of its pixels
I did not learn anything about copying and pasting images in class , and ive been searching the internet so much to find out how , but i cannot find any sites that teaches me how to do something like this
Do i do something like i=imread(smallimage) i=imcrop(i)
and then i dont know what else to do , how would i paste it in the other picture matrix?
is there impaste( location , bigimage)? oh jeez ive spent 40 of the past 48 hours trying to figure out matlab

Are smallimage and bigimage the _file names_ of images, or are they the image matrices ? imread() would be used if you are being passed the file names, but not if you are being passed the data.
You are not likely to have a use for imcrop.
If the function definition must be the one shown, then you cannot return anything from that function, which disagrees with your written requirements.

smallimage and bigimage are the file names yes ,

a = magic(7)
b = rand(2,3)
a(3:4,4:6) = b
% Or, more generally,:
startrow = 3;
startcol = 4;
a(startrow:startrow+size(b,1)-1,startcol:startcol+size(b,2)-1) = b;

The result of reading in an image is a matrix. After your imread() you would have two matrices. You can copy one matrix to a particular place in another matrix.
