# How to select framework of an image?

I am working on a programm to analyze over a Million pictures for my Bachelor's thesis and I'm quite stuck on this matter here:
The pictures/images have a size of 1024x1024 pixels. Now I need to (as quickly as possible) control the outer framework of each image. Anybody know how to help me with that? I'm posting what I've already made by selecting an 800x800 pixel area of each image in hopes to modify it into selecting onl the outer frame - to no avail.
Also the pictures are binarized, in case it might matter.
frame = BW2([1 1024 2:1023], [1:1024 1 1024]);
EDIT: I meant "as quickly as possible" in terms of not taking up too much time while running. This program should be able to analyze many images as quickly as possible so it won't have to run that long.

You can consider a frame of selection, force remaining pixels to black(0) or white(255), let's suppose data is a gray image-
data([1:50,50+end],:)=0;
%.......^ change accordingly
data(:,[1:50,50+end])=0;
figure, imshow(data);

Hi it didn't work out as my program crashes while using it.
But I ain't sure this is what I was looking for. It seems like it sets the value of the selected area to a 0 (talking about binary image here).
Maybe I should explain better what I'm exactly looking for:
I need to look at the outer frame of a 1024x1024 image (meaning everyting that's not inside [2:1023] in both axes) and see if it has the value 0.
Do you know how I should proceed?

I'm not sure what you mean exactly by "control".
This syntax is not really right for a 2-D binary image
frame = BW2([1 1024 2:1023], [1:1024 1 1024]);
I think you would get the whole image again. If you want to crop out an 800 by 800 subimage at 112, 112, do this
topRow = 112;
leftColumn = 112;
frame = BW2(topRow : topRow + 799, leftColumn : leftColumn + 799);
If you want to get the outer edges individually you can get them like this:
topRow = BW2(1, :);
bottomRow = BW2(end, :);
leftColumn = BW2(:, 1);
rightColumn = BW2(:, end);
