Mat src=imread("my.png");
Mat planes[3];
split(src,planes);  // planes[2] is the red channel

Thank you Sir for reply, I managed to write the code, and convert the related 3 channels from matrix form to bitmap form but code is not working. The app just show dialog box [Unfortunaly app has stopped].

prefer to use void cv::extractChannel (InputArray src, OutputArray dst, int coi )

cv::Mat out; cv::extractChannel(in, out, 0) // Supposing RGB channel with red first out....

Thank you :)

I have used this one and it worked well:

IplImage* frame_r = cvCreateImage(size, IPL_DEPTH_8U, 1);
IplImage* frame_g = cvCreateImage(size, IPL_DEPTH_8U, 1);
IplImage* frame_b = cvCreateImage(size, IPL_DEPTH_8U, 1);

    cvSplit(frame, frame_b, frame_g, frame_r, NULL);

What you are doing isn't C++ code but using the old C-style API. Keep in mind that the support for the old API will start to get less and less, since people are stimulated to use the newer, more clear C++ interfacing of OpenCV.

Sir how to subtract among three planes example r-g+b

That is just a simple operator. I think you can subtract and add matrices. Have you tried

Mat temp = red - green + blue;

This should work for your needs!
