```Maurus, a real signal cannot be uniquely represented by 1 quarter of the 2D
discrete Fourier transform (DFT) coefficients. I will use the following
non-symmetric 4 by 4 array:

img={{1,2,1,0},{1,1,0,0},{0,0,0,0},{0,0,0,0}};

MatrixForm[Partition[InverseFourier[img],{2,2}]]

(* I use InverseFourier as my definition of the DFT, as is common in
engineering, signal processing *)

The coefficients have complex conjugate symmetry - they are all related, not
random.

For a short explanation on the ordering of the coefficients in 1D (think of
a single row or column of your 2D transform) see MathGroup archives from
approx 2 weeks ago.

Also take a look at my notebooks on Fourier series and transform in
Wolfram's courseware catalog http://library.wolfram.com/courseware/. I will
be adding a comprehensive set of notebooks on digital image processing to
you can wait that long.

Hope this helps,

Mariusz
