   can't think of an easy way to do this: what do you mean by "image"
exactly?  A bitmapped image from a file?  Or something like the
output of image()?  If the latter, you may be able to cobble together something
using the trans3d() function (i.e., manually recreating an image()
by drawing colored squares, but transforming each of the to the 3D
perspective).  If the former, you might be able to do something with
the pixmap package ...
