when I run the code below for the attached image, I get

450   348     3

It is not very clear in the Matlab help files.
Which is colum length and which is row length?
How come there are three responses here? Shouldnt there just be length by width?
What is 3?
``````I=imread('lightbulb', 'jpg');
d=size(I)
``````
lightbulb.jpg

With the first line you read the image file into 3-dimentional array mxnx3. m is your image height in pixels, n - width and 3 means 3 layers of RGB colors for each pixel - red, green and blue.
So the second line will give the dimensions (size) of your array in the form [m n 3].

Be the way, you can see documentation of any function in Matlab with the command:
doc function_name

First number after size function is always number of rows (it's 1st dimension), second - number of columns, third - pages (or layers), and so on.
