The answer is the line should read:
image.srf = array[0]; // notice not img AND . instead of ->

since image is a struct (not a pointer to a struct) you use the .(dot) operator to access it''s members.

BTW ... are you using C or C++??? you wrote your struct definition in old C style NOT C++ ... in c++ it should be like this:

struct sth{

notice ... no typedef ... and no name following the end brace ... the name gets assigned from the one given between the word struct and the opening brace .. just like classes ...

good luck
