Clear? Not really. You accepted the answer below though, so we assume you are done. I never did figure out how you able to perform image segmentation on the image before you even had the image in MATLAB as a 2D image array, but whatever.... Jan's code tells you how to convert the 2D grayscale image or 3D color image into a 1D column vector, though I don't know how or why that would be useful to you. If you have any questions on image segmentation, see my image segmentation tutorial: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/?term=authorid%3A31862
