There have been analyzed the main quality parameters of 27 wheat samples from Romanian crops, of the years 2010 and 2011, namely: Humidity (%), Hectolitric mass (kg / hl), Falling number (sec), Protein content (%), Wet gluten content (%) and Gluten Index. Afterwards, the wheat samples were ground on the Chopen pilot-type mill and the alveografic parameters were determined from the resulting flour: Resistance (P, mm), Extensibility (L, mm), Mechanical Work (W, 10E-4J), Elasticity index (Ie,%), Gluten Extensibility index and the P/L report. The wheat samples taken for analysis were scanned using a commercial scanner, at a resolution of 200 dpi. The obtained results were examined with a specific software, used for the analysis of ImageJ image. For each image we determined the color histogram with the specific parameters: R, G, B, Brightness and Fractal Dimension. Our results have shown highly significant correlations between the color histogram parameters (Brightness, R, G, B) and the alveografic parameters, namely: Resistance (-0.64
