Is there a way within Mathematica of taking an image
generated by a Mathematica graphics command and 
rendering it as a bitmap into an array of the form

{{{R,G,B},{R,G,B}, ...},{{R,G,B},{R,G,B}, ...}, ... }

so I can do further processing on the bitmap?

I have noticed that the front end has a menu
command cell->convert to->Bitmap which converts
the cell to a bitmap in the front end but I didn't
see any way of getting the bitmap into an array like
the one above.

Thanks for any help,
