Interleaving

Interleaving
is an option for Image and related functions that specifies whether data corresponding to different channels in an object such as an image should be interleaved.
  • With the typical default setting Interleaving->True, objects are represented by an array of lists, where each list gives the value of each channel for each array element.
  • With Interleaving->False, objects are represented by a list of arrays, where each array gives all the values for a particular channel.
Change the internal representation of an image to store channels in planar form:

For single-channel images, the Interleaving option is always set to None.
