Confusion over Slicing Sprites


#1

First, I have to apologize for the confusion. My last post looking for help was confusing to say the least.

I was looking for a way to slice up one image (say, 48 x 48 pixels) into 4 24 x 24 pixel images. I know I can do this by cutting it up at import, but I was wondering if there was a way to avoid saving out the 48 x 48 image and re-importing the image just to cut it up?

thanks for the help

Hi, pretty slow response but I’ll write anyway in case you’re still wondering.

I’m just not sure exactly what you’re trying to do, but I think that’s what you’ll have to do tbh. It depends on how you intend to use it. You can export it as a sprite sheet right away or just use the image as a sprite sheet without changing a thing if you intend to use it in game development. Otherwise you can select each 24x24 piece and press Ctrl+Shift+C to copy the selection as flattened, then make a new file and paste it in and save it from there. Either way is kind of a work around I suppose so.
