Hello, I am trying to output the name of an image file I onto a figure that shows the picture. The name is obtained from and checks out OK in the matlab window.
out2 =
NoSerialNumber_R03C02_3-Swath1_C5_T05_red.tif.
However, it appears on the figure weird
Im assuming its to do with the underscores - how can I correct it? Thanks

By default the interpreter of text objects is set to 'tex'. Set it to 'none', i.e.
set(obj,'Interpreter','none')
For reference, check the text property Interpreter.

Without adjusting your interpreter setting (keep LaTeX interpreter on), you can use backslash just before the underscore to keep the underscore as underscore and not TeX command of subscript:
e.g.
title(NoSerialNumber\_R03C02\_3-Swath1_C5\_T05\_red.tif)

thanks for the advice, but each file I ready in has a different name so it sno possible for me to manually go and change the text to include an additional backslash.
