Matrix dimension must agree to use .*

I debugged my code and checked my workspace variables, and when I loaded in the two images their numbers were identical (matrix dimensions, their matrix dimensions after I manipulated them) yet when I use .* it still says an error because .* requires identical matrix dimensions, when, Q.E.D., that's what I have! Suggestions?

Without knowing what the images are and seeing your code, it’s difficult to determine the problem. That they’re images means that they could have three dimensions (the third being the colour channels in a RGB image), and if one is a grayscale image having two dimensions, you could get that error even if they have the same number of rows and columns.

... or for a number of other reasons, for instance if you are using textscan and want to replicate a format descriptor without typing out each one, use repmat('%f',1,10) to replicate ‘%f’ 10 times.
It’s highly useful, although if you’re operating on a matrix with a vector element-wise, bsxfun is usually faster.
