For grayscale:
Xdown = X(1:2:end,1:2:end);
If it's RGB, keep the third dimension:
Xdown = X(1:2:end,1:2:end,:);

That's how I'd do it for simple subsampling by an integer (2, 3, 4, etc.). There is also the imresize() function that you can use. It will handle interpolation if the subsampling is not by integer amounts.
