Does anyone know of a program that will let you cut up images for re-assembly in tables in a web page.  I'm tired of using Photoshop and scrawling down all these numbers.  HELP!

Err, take this in a nice way, but what do you mean?

I get as far as "this guy wants to take large images and divide them up into pieces so that they can load better in a web page" -- but scrawling, or scrolling, "down all those numbers"?

Assuming that you mean "doing very accurate selections in Photoshop and having to watch the info pallette to see the co-ordinates" there are probably some ways you can make your life easier in photoshop, by using Actions, or by saving selections in a couple of different ways.

Please spell out a bit more accurately what's going on -- which version of Photoshop, and are these images all the same size, or do they vary?

Yes and no.

I'm dividing up large images for use in a web page where certain parts of the image will be updated with the "onMouseOver" and "onMouseOut" events to do some image swapping.  Say for example I'm dividing up an image into 3 vertical segments,  I have to write down the Y values for the first segment, add one for the next segment, figure out where that will end.... and so on.  This gets much worse if I have to do it for an image cut up into vertical and horizontal segments...lots of numbers to SCRAWL down.  

I know that there are programs for the PC that let you just make templates to cut up images (the standard and "mouse over" versions) so both are identical.  Using the "actions" in photoshop isn't really viable, because It would require just as much work as doing it by hand (programming the actions for the specific sizes and everything.)  All this is kind of a mouthful, but hopefully it makes sense.

Thanks for you help.

GraphicConvertor for the Macintosh is what I have used fairly successfully. Search for it on the web, and you should be able to get a working shareware copy.
