% Load the image
rgbImage=imread('image_line.png');
% Get the one plane/Gray Image
red_channel=rgbImage(:,:,1);
% Segment the ROI
line_seg=bwareafilt(imbinarize(red_channel,0.85),1);
% Display the Region of Interest
figure,imshow(line_seg);
% Get the rows and column indices of ROI
[r,c]=find(line_seg==1);
% Get the pixel values of particular rows & columns
rgbImage(r,c,:)
Note: you may get 3 pixels values for single row & cloumns indices, as there are three plane in the RGB image.

yes you are right it was my mistake.
what i wanted was to first draw the line in the pic and then find the coresponding pixel.
So for example if i want to draw a line 45 degrees starting from the point (0,0) of the pic and then find the coresponding pixels of that line.
Sorry if i did not post my question very crearly.
