You can get information about an image service describing the properties of the service, you can also get the pixel data from the service the way you want it, for instance you can ask the data to be in certain extent, band combination, compression type, etc. To export the data from a service in a well-known raster format (e.g. BMP, PNG) either as MIME data or URL, you can use ExportImage. To get the data from a service as a byte array, you can use GetImage.
