# Raster

Raster[{{a11,a12,},}]
is a two-dimensional graphics primitive which represents a rectangular array of gray cells.

Raster[{{{r11,g11,b11},},}]
represents an array of RGB color cells.

Raster[{{{r11,g11,b11,α11},},}]
represents an array of color cells with opacity .

Raster[{{{a11,α11},},}]
represents an array of gray cells with the specified opacities.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• Raster[array,ColorFunction->f] specifies that each cell should be colored using the graphics directives obtained by applying the function f to the value specified for that cell.
• If array has dimensions , then Raster[array] is assumed to occupy the rectangle Rectangle[{0,0},{m,n}]. »
• Raster[array,{{xmin,ymin},{xmax,ymax}}] specifies that the raster should be taken instead to fill the rectangle Rectangle[{xmin,ymin},{xmax,ymax}]. »
• Scaled and Offset can be used to specify the coordinates for the rectangle.
• Raster[array,Automatic] is equivalent to Raster[array,{{0,0},{m,n}}].
• Raster[array,rect,{amin,amax}] specifies that cell values should be scaled so that corresponds to 0 and corresponds to 1. Cell values outside this range are clipped to be 0 or 1.
• array can be a SparseArray object.
• Image[Raster[]] converts a Raster object to an image.
