[R] Image processing? Manipulating image data in R?

Besides the pixmap facilities (from the help page:
" RGB pixmaps are three-dimensional arrays ..." and
" Grey and indexed pixmaps are matrices, the element `[1,1]'
corresponds to the upper left corner as usual."),
I use to read in images in binary raw format
using raedBin() as R matrices. From there
on you can apply any R method you want. But
note that images are often too large for R. I have
a couple of functions to display matrices as grey and rgb
images in R with some histogram stretching to
enhance contrast. Let me know if you are interested on them.
Also, look at message to r-help:

From: "Jonathan Q. Li" <jonathan_li at agilent.com>
for a very interesting R function using tcl-tk.
(let me know if you want me to forward that message to you).
Finally, note that python has an image proc. library called
PIL and R has an interface to python.
N.B: Z-IMAGE looks like a very comprehensive image processing
package in C that can be called as Splus
(and R?) functions thanks to an specific interface, but
you must pay for it.
