Sorry, but the file format can be jpeg,jpeg 2000,gif,etc,etc, in summary those supported by Matlab. And another thing. I don't want to save the level of color. What I want to save is the level of intensitiy. When you have a image, you have from 0 to 255 levels of intensity. I want to modify the colormap of the image and then, modifying the level of intensity.
