How to extract the RGB color composition of an image in value?

I would like to extract the value percentage of each red, blue and green percentage of the image and put it as an attribute in database.

    Install "Image Handling" extension, and there "Read Image as ExampleSet" will read the directory of images, and represent each image as an RGB tripple of values in the range 0..255.

    Try with one low resolution image, eg PNG, and see what happens.

    Do it has limit to process the image? my file only contained 46 images. What should I do to overcome this problem?

    Thank you for your help, but the result is still not transfer into attribute database. What operator should I used so that these value can be nicely stored in attribute dataset?

    Each picture is represented as three sets of numbers c columns time r rows of Red, Green and Blue pixel values. The question is now how would you like to store these away? You may need to convert them into into some flat structure perhaps, which may be challenging if your pictures are of different size.

    I would like to use Median Filter but I am having problem  the example set is a huge data. How can I fit this data into Median Filter?

    I am not sure what you wish to do with these captured images, if you want to keep color or not, or if the images have or have not been previously scaled. Here is an quick example of how you can capture a directory full of images. I read all image meta information first. Then I read these images in grayscale (one channel only), which returns a collection of channel collections (in our case one only per image). The collection of images can now be flattened but not yet merged as each image is of a different size. So I process each image in a loop over the collection and for each select only 100 rows and 100 columns (essentially it is a crop), I also add an attribute to identify each image by its number, which later I'll define as a batch type. Now all image information can be appended and stored if wished to.

    If you wanted to work with very large number of high resolution images, It is probably best to pre-process then first outside RapidMiner. Python has a great range image processing libraries, e.g. see:
