Let my matrix is
3 2 14 5
7 1 8 9
11 11 12 13
I need to find the substraction between column 1 and 2 and store the result in coulmn 1. similarily for coulmn 3 and 4 and result will be in coulmn 2. i.e the result should be like this
1 9
6 -1
0 -1
kindly, suggest solution. Thank you.

A general solution (without hard-coded columns):
>> M(:,1:2:end) - M(:,2:2:end)
ans =
1 9
6 -1
0 -1
EDIT: if you have uint8 image data, then convert to double first:
double(M(:,1:2:end)) - double(M(:,2:2:end))

Result = YourMatrix(:,[1 3]) - YourMatrix(:,[2 4])
