Hi,
Check out the sample below... Load an image into Image1, and then press the button...

The Channels are singled out by using the pmMask mode on the Canvas.pen object... This mode perofrms an AND with the Color property of the Pen and Brush, on each pixel of the area it draws to... so a simple way to get RGB channels is just to set this mode along with the color you want to single out, and then just draw a rectangle over the whole image.

(I Attached the .pas and .dfm files as code snippets)

/Hypo


unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls, ExtCtrls, pngimage;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Image1: TImage;
    ImageRed: TImage;
    ImageGreen: TImage;
    ImageBlue: TImage;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var aColorBmp : TBitmap;
begin
  aColorBmp := TBitmap.Create;
  try
    // Get the picture into a bitmap...
    aColorBmp.PixelFormat := pf32bit;
    aColorBmp.SEtSize(Image1.Picture.Width, Image1.Picture.Height);
    aColorBmp.Canvas.Draw(0, 0, Image1.Picture.Graphic);
    // Mask out red component...
    ImageRed.Picture.Bitmap.Assign(aColorBmp);
    ImageRed.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Pen.Mode := pmMask;
    ImageRed.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Pen.Color := RGB(255, 0, 0);
    ImageRed.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Brush.Color := RGB(255, 0, 0);
    ImageRed.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Rectangle(0, 0, ImageRed.Picture.Width, ImageRed.Picture.Height);
    // Mask out red component...
    ImageGreen.Picture.Bitmap.Assign(aColorBmp);
    ImageGreen.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Pen.Mode := pmMask;
    ImageGreen.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Pen.Color := RGB(0, 255, 0);
    ImageGreen.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Brush.Color := RGB(0, 255, 0);
    ImageGreen.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Rectangle(0, 0, ImageGreen.Picture.Width, ImageGreen.Picture.Height);
    // Mask out red component...
    ImageBlue.Picture.Bitmap.Assign(aColorBmp);
    ImageBlue.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Pen.Mode := pmMask;
    ImageBlue.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Pen.Color := RGB(0, 0, 255);
    ImageBlue.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Brush.Color := RGB(0, 0, 255);
    ImageBlue.Picture.Bitmap.Canvas.Rectangle(0, 0, ImageBlue.Picture.Width, ImageBlue.Picture.Height);
  finally
    FreeAndNil(aColorBmp);
  end;
end;

end.
