I have an image img1 and some data with a density plot plot1 to reflect the target position of the image. I tried to combine img1 and plot1 as below:-

targetPosition = BlockRandom[SeedRandom[123]; RandomReal[100, {35, 50}]];
img1 = ImageCrop[ExampleData[{"TestImage", "Airport"}], {1000, 700}];
plot1 = ListDensityPlot[Exp@targetPosition, 
  AspectRatio -> ImageAspectRatio@img1, PlotRange -> All, 
  ImageSize -> ImageDimensions[img1], Axes -> False, Frame -> None];
ImageAdd[ImageMultiply[plot1, 0.6], ImageMultiply[img1, 0.4]]

enter image description here

As you can see, there's still a margin here. Thus the position will have errors due to the margin. How can I get rid of the margin?

Many thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. Thus I was thinking the trick should be some Padding options at ImageAdd. I now realized that the Padding option should be set in ListDensityPlot. Many thanks. $\endgroup$

PlotRangePadding >> Details

PlotRangePadding -> Automatic adds a total of 4% for PlotRange settings All, Full, and Automatic. For explicit settings, it adds no padding.

Adding PlotRangePadding -> 0 to ListDensityPlot gives

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. I was stuck in the options of ImageAdd. Now it is solved! $\endgroup$
