Unsharp filter: Matlab

I need to make an unsharp filter using following parameters:
%gaussian_size     size of the applied filter
&gaussian_std      standard deviation of the gaussian filter, sigma
for an image. in the folder images.
Following functions must be implemented:
Input:      <RGB frames>, Filterparameter
Output;    filtered <RGB frames>
Data: filter_unsharp.m

Would be grateful for your help

AFAIK unsharp filter in Matlab does not use gaussian smoothing. It subtracts laplacian filter (with parameter ALPHA, which controls laplacian shape) from the original image.
If you  need to use those gaussian parameters, you'll have to develop your own filter function. Once you have it, run imfilter on separate frames within for-loop. Somethig like
H = fspecial('unsharp');
for i=1_numel(video)
    video2(i).cdata = imfilter(video(i).cdata,H,'replicate');

The basic setup is:

I = imread('cameraman.tif');
H = fspecial('unsharp');
sharpened = imfilter(I,H,'replicate');
imshow(sharpened); title('Sharpened Image');

You can pass other options to fspecial (the filter parameters). Take a look at
doc fspecial
in Matlab. I'm assuming you have the Image Processing Toolbox?

Hello and thanks for the answer, I have already seen this code on the mathworks website. My problem is how to make this function from it:
 function video = filter_unsharp(video, gaussian_size, gaussian_std);
As an example something similar to this:
function video = filter_rand_illumination(video, min_brightness, max_brightness)
    RGB = video.frame(1).filtered;
    HSV = rgb2hsv(RGB);
     luma_factor = 0;
          while(luma_factor < min_brightness || luma_factor > max_brightness)
           luma_factor = rand(1);
      v = HSV(:,:,3);
      hue_v = v * luma_factor;
      HSV(:,:,3) = hue_v;
RGB = hsv2rgb(HSV);
 video.frame(1).filtered = RGB;
This is just an example of how do I need to construct unsharp filter.
