# ImageTake

 ImageTake gives an image consisting of the first n rows of image. ImageTakegives an image consisting of the last n rows of image. ImageTakegives rows through . ImageTakegives the image that spans to and to .
• ImageTake takes the rows of an image to be numbered from top to bottom, starting at 1.
• ImageTake uses the standard sequence specification:
 All all elements n elements 1 through n -n last n elements {n} element n only {m,n} elements m through n inclusive {m,n,s} elements m through n in steps of s
• If fewer elements exist than are requested, ImageTake will just return the elements that are present.
Take the first 70 pixel rows from an image:
Take rows 80 to 200 and columns 100 to 200:
Take the first 70 pixel rows from an image:

Taking rows 40 to 2 gives rows 2 to 40 reversed:
