Since you have a raw 8 bit image, create a matrix that has the data size and then load your image into it.

Mat input = Mat(256, 256, CV_8UC1);
input = imread("file_location.raw", 1);

This will give you the raw data inside a matrix element, ready for processing.

Why use other software if you can do it with openCV functionality?
