There are a couple of things for image processing in R (look at pixmap

processing images (nor is Matlab, Octave, IDL: they use to have specific 
packages for image processing and analysis, but resulting applications 
are way to slow in comparison to dedicated software).

A good approach is to mix ImageJ and R, if you are looking for an Open 
Source solution. You could look at ZooImage for an example application 
using these two software (analysis of digital zooplankton images, see:
