Carsten, How about something like this. Show[Graphics[ {Rectangle[{0, 0}, {2, 1}, Show[Graphics[RasterArray[{{Hue[0.5], Hue[1]}}]], AspectRatio -> Automatic, DisplayFunction -> Identity]], Text["some text", {0.5, -0.05}, {0, 0.7}, {0, 1}], Text["some more text", {1.5, -0.05}, {0, 0.7}, {0, 1}], Text["Text Labeled Raster Array", {1, 1.1}] }], PlotRange -> {{-0.1, 2.1}, {-0.5, 1.3}}, AspectRatio -> Automatic, Background -> Linen, ImageSize -> 450 ]; The labels might be better if they were at a slant, but then it takes some finicky work to get them positioned correctly. This kind of labeling isn't too great because it takes up a lot of space and there might be a better way if we knew what the labeling actually was. David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: Carsten Siegmund [mailto:carsten.siegmund at em.uni-karlsruhe.de] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Hi! I like to plot a raster array but for its elements it does not make sense to be described by numbers. Therefore I've labeled the frameticks manually and tried to rotate the labels to avoid overwriting for large arrays. e.g.: Show[Graphics[RasterArray[{{Hue[0.5], Hue[1]}}]], Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> {{{0.5, StyleForm["some text", FontVariations->{RotationAngle->90}]}, {1.5, StyleForm["some more text", FontVariations->{RotationAngle->90}]}, None,None,None} ] I don't get any error messages but the plot looks the same as without the use of StyleForm[...]. Any suggestions? Thanks, Carsten [Mathematica 5.0, Windows XP Prof.]
