    Can action script analyse images

    If I were to make an app and have this app take a picture then is AS capable of analysing/reading pieces of that image?

    With AS you can access all the image data and manipulate it however you like. What do you mean by analyze?

    I want to be able to extract numbers that are present on an image. Say I take a picture of a row of numbers then I want to be able to single them out. Don't know if AS can do this

    Yes. You should use somebody else's code or a server software to do it though.

    You use the BitmapData class: getPixel() for example. Check here:

    Thank you very much Cancerinform. I see you can target colours from the bitmap, height, etc although is there a built in feature that you know of which can target numbers from the bitmap image? On the URL you sent i didn't see anything like that ...

    No. You have to code it yourself. Flash is just a programming tool. You can use flash to do what you want to do.

    There are other people who have coded facial recognition in as3 so you can do it.
