# Convert a density histogram to an image?

GROUPS:
 I have a density histogram with specified bin sizes in x and y: BinPlot= DensityHistogram[data, {1000,500}] I would like to convert this to an image that I can perform a Gaussian blur on. I've tried looking through the documentation but can't figure out how to do so; is there a function that can convert the density histogram to an image? Or do I need to use another type of histogram in order to do that? I know I can convert a matrix of data into an image but it seems like HistogramList doesn't work for Density Histograms. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 Have you tried Image[BinPlot]?
