There might be a shorter way in the digital image
processing functions in version 7 as many new
ones where added.

But this is one way to do this. If you find
any errors pls let me know:

------ 2D spectrum of image ------------------------------
ImageDimensions[img] (*look at image*)

ImageChannels[img]  (*see how many channels*)

data=ImageData[img];  (*get data*)

Map[Image[data[[All,All,#]]]&,Range[1,nChannel]](*look at each channel*)

d=data[[All,All,2]]; (*get channel 2*)

(*center Image first*)
Map[(d[[  #[[1]],#[[2]] ]]=(-1)^(#[[1]]+#[[2]])*d[[#[[1]],#[[2]] ]])&,indx];

(*make FFT and look at spectrum and phase*)
fw= Fourier[d,FourierParameters->{1,1}];

fudgeFactor=100; (*adjust for better viewing as needed*)

ArrayPlot[Abs@(fudgeFactor * Log[1+fw]),PlotLabel->"Magnitude spectrum",ImageSize->400]
ArrayPlot[Arg[fw],PlotLabel->"Phase spectrum",ImageSize->400]

see my howto note #95
