I think you have it backwards (the error message not withstanding).
Read the documentation for image, note the beginning of the Details
section, and then compare these two examples, both of which succeed
on my system (R 2.1.1).
x <- 1:10
y <- 1:15
z <- outer(x,y)
image(x,y,z)
xb <- c(.5,x+.5)
yb <- c(.5,y+.5)
image(x,y,z)
x and y provide either the centers of the cells, or the boundaries of
the cells. In the latter case, the lengths of x and y should be 1
greater than the dim of z, not one less.
(I'm including my full version info to be complete, but I doubt that
you problem has to do with your platform [OS]).
