Hi Amit,

If you can send me a complete, compilable C program and a small
example image that would help a great deal.  

>From the piece of you sent, here is one possible problem:
Whenever you use vtkImageReslice, you should make sure you set
the following appropriately.


I recall mentioning this to you in an earlier email.  I repeat,
this is _very_ important.  Don't trust vtkImageReslice to set
up sensible defaults for these parameters.

If you want to rewite the transformed image back into the original
vtkImageData, then you might actually want to hold the image in
your own C++ array instead of in VTK's memory, and use 
vtkImageImport and vtkImageExport to move the data back and forth
between your array and the VTK pipeline.
