Fourier and InverseFourier works with 1D, 2D, ... arrays.

When working with images, be aware that the data after Fourier
transform does not have its lower frequencies at the center of the
array, but in the corners. It is usually annoying. You may want to
use the following work-around (Gonzalez and Woods, DIP 3e, Chapter 4):

CenteredFourier[img_] := Module[{data = ImageData[img], dim},
   dim = Dimensions[data];
   Fourier[data*(-1)^Table[i + j, {i, First[dim]}, {j, Last[dim]}]]

CenteredInverseFourier[F_] := Module[{dim},
   dim = Dimensions[F];
       Table[i + j, {i, First[dim]}, {j, Last[dim]}]]]
