The Millennium Galaxy Catalogue provides a representative and complete sample of nearby galaxies for structural analysis. GIM2D is used to model the light profiles for over 10000 resolved galaxies, using three different schemes: R1/4 +Exponential, R1/n +Exponential, and R1/n. The resulting catalogues are shown to be robust for those galaxies with component half-light radii greater than the seeing.
