[R-sig-Geo] Problem with ignoring background value

Hi all,

I've been having troubles to get rid of background values (255) of
aerial photo
mosaics (.img) in Erdas Imagine. I've tried "mosaic" (which has options
ignore certain input and output background and 0 values), "rescale"
(ignore 0
and 255), ArcGIS copy raster (ignore 0 and 255), etc. etc. Everything
that has
an option to ignore both 0 and 255 that I've tried.

None of those worked in terms of removing the white background of the
photo mosaics. I have nearly 50 images, so I can't manually create AOI
and then
subset each mosaic based on AOI.

Any suggestions? Thanks for you help.
