For instance, a 3*3 image (pixel 1 to 9), the edges = [1 2;1 3; 1 4; 1 5; 1 6; 1 7; 1 8; 1 9; 2 3; 2 4; 2 5;..;2 9;..;9 7; 9 8]. > > > > > > One way i could think of is by replicating the values as follows, > > > n=3 ; > > > x=(1:3)'; > > > > > > However when i tried on a relatively big image, i got this error, > > > ???

I was just thinking instead of looking at the close neighborhood (4 or 8connected) of each pixel that appears to be very local, maybe we can extend it to all pixels and establish the relationships between them. But now it looks like it's not practical to do so..
You can absolutely do that, but I don't think your initial approach would work, what relationship are you hoping to establish?
