Hi Mike,

You can use Part (or Take), as in the following code:

`In[1]:=
img = {{{1, 0, 1}, {2, 3, 2}, {4, 6, 4}, {3, 2, 1}},
{{9, 1, 3}, {3, 2, 1}, {4, 3, 3}, {5, 3, 2}}};

redpts = img[[All,All,1]]
greenpts = img[[All,All,2]]
bluepts = img[[All,All,3]]

Out[2]=
{{1, 2, 4, 3}, {9, 3, 4, 5}}

Out[3]=
{{0, 3, 6, 2}, {1, 2, 3, 3}}

Out[4]=
{{1, 2, 4, 1}, {3, 1, 3, 2}}

Cheers,
Jean-Marc
