Hi all,

I am working on fractals through IFS (Iterated Function Systems).  An
IFS ca be defined as a set of affine transformations that are
iteratively applied to an initial image.  All examples in the Wolfram
Demonstrations Project do IFSs with polygons.  When you apply an
affine transformation to a raster image, you get the rotations,
reflections, and shearings right, but not the translations nor the

I am reading a jpg file with import, extracting the raster from it,
and applying an affine transformation.

oce = Import["ExampleData/ocelot.jpg"];
oceras = oce[[1]];
  AffineTransform[{{{-0.139, 0.263},
                            {0.246, 0.224}},
                           {0.57, -0.036}}]]]

In this case, the affine transformation is a composition of
translation, rotation, reflection, and shearing.

Any ideas on how to proceed?  Any tricks?
