I have a large graphic that needs to be razored, i.e. split into equal sections.  I am only a lowly PaintShop Pro user and every time I use it, I get an extra border or additional canvas size and nothing, NOTHING seems to make a difference.  Is there a better tool I can use that doesn't mean I have to measure from pixel to pixel?

Try a small program called PictureDicer - it's freeware/shareware, and I have found it very useful.
It chops up images into a collection of smaller images (for use on web pages)
As far as I remember it is a bit basic and relies on manual positioning of the cut.  You can however manually edit the file that contains the "grid" used to chop the image to give you an exact measurement.

Okay, tried it out.  Does a great job dicing but does some serious dithering with the color.  Any suggestions on how to prevent that other than following the directions (which I did)...

It's not a problem I have encountered with the program.
Maybe you could try altering the input and output formats, e.g. use high quality JPG files rather than GIF.
