The convention in MATLAB is that matrices are 2D. Variables with arbitrary numbers of dimensions are arrays. [All matrices are also arrays, but only some arrays are matrices.] Certain operations are defined only on matrices and will not work on ND (N > 2) arrays. [Matrix multiplication is one example.]

img = rand(5, 4, 3); pixel23 = img(2, 3, :)
The first element of pixel23 is the R component of the pixel at location (2, 3) in img. The second is the G component, the third if B.
