Hei!

I have a problem with image processing in matlab for a lab course. I have only basic matlab knowledge and hope to be able to explain my problem with my basic school english...

The code attached is a loop in matlab to calculate a "moving average" on a picture. The first and second loop is for the rows (german: Zeilen) and columns (Spalten) of the picture (P), the third and fourth loop is for the rows and columns of the filter matrix (kern). Then it sums up the values of the filter matrix and divides it by the sum of the loadings. ewr and ewc are needed to calculate the new border of the image. (zero padding or replicate)

My question:

I need a way to do this with fast matrix/vector operations if possible.

I am not allowed to use any imfilter, conv, conv2, block-processing or sliding-window functions.

What i can imagine is to exchange the 2 inner loops by a matrix-multiplication. I would multiply the filter matrix with the right submatrix of the image. But to replace the outer loops i need to know the position/index to know wich submatrix i have to multiply...

I read something about the not so well known accumarray() function but i don't know how i can use this for 2D operation.

Maybe someone can give me a hint...

Thanks in advance!

```
for ip = (ewr+1):(rc(1)+(ewr)) %Zeilen
for np = (ewc+1):(rc(2)+ewc)%Spalten
for Z = -ewr:ewr
for S = -ewc:ewc
PF(ip,np)=PF(ip,np)+P(ip+Z,np+S)*kern(Z+ewr+1,S+ewc+1);
end
end
PF(ip,np)=PF(ip,np)/(sum(sum(kern,1),2));
end
end
```

```
for ip = (row_ext+1):(rc(1)+row_ext) %rows
for np = (col_ext+1):(rc(2)+col_ext)%columns
PF(ip,np)=sum(sum(kern.*P( (ip-row_ext):(ip+row_ext) , (np-col_ext):(np+col_ext)),1),2)/sum(sum(kern,1),2);
end
end
```
