Description

function hImage = scalebar(imageName, unitsPerPixel, barSize, units,color,pos)

 % SCALEBAR(imageFile, pixelSize, pixelSize, magnification, units, negative)
 % Adds a scale bar in the lower right-hand corner of an image in the
 % active set of axes. Be sure that your whole scale bar fits within the
 % image width (minus 10%). It should not touch the left edge of your
 % image.
 %
 % Required inputs are:
 % imageName : EITHER an image variable name (e.g. foo)
 % OR a file path and filename (e.g. ~/foo.png)
 % pixelSize (float) : the actual size of a camera pixel (e.g. 7.4)
 % magnification (float) : the microscope magnification (e.g. 40)
 % barScale (float) : bar size in image units (e.g. 100)
 % units (string) : the units of the image (e.g. micron)

% read in the image and display
