The image is put into a function:

#declare MyTesti = function
{ pigment
   { image_map
     { "My image.png"  map_type 0
     // scale <1,1,1>


(I am not sure where this function came from - I used it many years ago 
in another project.)

These 4 functionas contain the information for each colour:

#declare TestR = function {MyTesti(x,y,z).red}      // Extract colours
#declare TestG = function {MyTesti(x,y,z).green}
#declare TestB = function {MyTesti(x,y,z).blue}
#declare TestK = function {MyTesti(x,y,z).grey}

Each point on the image is interrogated and a sphere is drawn.
The sphere is scaled by a constant in X and by brightness in Y.
The sphere is rotated depending on the predominant colour: R, G, B or 
neutral. (Rotation must be a multiple of 45 degrees or the spheres don't 
join up to make a line.)
The sphere is scaled to match the aspect of the input image.

I can post the code, but it needs to be cleaned up first.
