I'm not sure if this answers your question, but you can approximate the 
image using the singular value decomposition. This is not really the 
same as downsampling, but, viewed as a matrix decomposition, it does 
have the form that you indicate.

Here is an example from another recent MathGroup thread.

tt = Table[Cos[x*y], {x, -3., 3., .05}, {y, -3., 3., .05}];

The dimension is 121x121. We use the 25 largest singular values (in this 
example, six seems adequate)

ttsvd = SingularValueDecomposition[tt, 25];

Then the approximated image is reconstructed as

tt2 = ttsvd[[1]].ttsvd[[2]].Transpose[ttsvd[[3]]];

One can compare

ListContourPlot[tt]

to

ListContourPlot[tt2]

to get an idea of the quality.
