    I have an 8-bit grayscale image and want to extract the pixel values to an
    array, to Excel, to a CSV text file, or to what some apps refer to as a
    text image. I have apps that will do that - for example, ImageJ allows
    SaveTo as a text file, and ImagePro has a BitMap Analysis function that
    allows DDE to Excel, copy to clipboard, or save to a text file.

    Unfortunately, the only app I will have available to do that with is
    Photoshop. I have looked over the menus, searched (but probably missed the
    correct key words), browsed the HELP index, and haven't found anything like
    that. I don't know enough about image formats ata detailed enough level to
    just save to an image file and manually extract the pixel values.

    Is there a fairly simple way to accomplish that with Photoshop?

  2. No. You cannot do it just like that in photoshop.

    You can save as Photoshop RAW format. It is just the RAW bytes
    in binary format. Should be very easy to convert to what you
    want with a simple program.

    You can also download the freeware program IrfanView. It supports
    lots of formats. You can e.g. save as a text based PPM file.
    This should be very easy to convert.
