I want to take this:deck of cards

and make one separate picture for for each card.

Is there a quick / easy / free way to do this?

I know you can use software such as Adobe Fireworks to split and image into multiple individual ones using guidelines and such. I am curious to know of other methods, though. +1 – iglvzx Nov 22 '11 at 1:14
    
@iglvzx Why not put that as an answer? – wizlog Nov 22 '11 at 1:19
    
Ah. You are correct. I was hoping for a 'free' software solution. – iglvzx Nov 22 '11 at 1:21
    
@iglvzx Thanks, I'll add that. – wizlog Nov 22 '11 at 1:23
    
After some research, it looks like GIMP can accomplish this as well! – iglvzx Nov 22 '11 at 1:28

How about imagemagick:

convert AtoCb.jpg -crop 11x5@  +repage  +adjoin  card_%d.jpg

This creates 55 image tiles based on an 11x5 layout.

This is probably the best solution for uniformly spaced pieces. – iglvzx Nov 22 '11 at 1:43

Yeah, I should have caveated this with if there is any variance in the size of each image tile on the original, then it might go out a bit. Make sure the dimensions of the original image are factors of 11 and 5 in x and y. – Paul Nov 22 '11 at 1:56

Adobe Fireworks has a 'slicing' feature which can export an image into multiple images. As for the opensource realm, GIMP has a Guillotine feature located under Image > Transform. These both use 'guides', vertical and horizontal lines which you have to place beforehand.
