How can I take a big image in gimp and split it up into smaller equal sized pieces and also do the reverse-combine lots of smaller images into one larger one.
Thanks.

If you get the GIMP-Perl plugin and some scripts, there is one called Perl-o-tine that does splitting on a grid or by custom lines.

As for rejoining, i'm not sure if there is such a thing, but with a little scripting you could easily roll your own.

There are some free utilities for joining images. Just google for them, they are waiting for you :)

If you're planning on doing this for a large number of images, you may want to look into using ImageMagick. ImageMagick is a set of command-line tools that allow batch image manipulation, conversion, etc. making it fairly easy to write scripts to automatically do all the work for you.

I would recommend image magick too. I'm not sure if it will mend images, but it probably does. One thing that most people may not know is that GIMP is also command-line scriptable. Not quite as flexible as ImageMagick, but worth looking into if IM won't do some more complicated functions.

woot <3 imagemagick. A script shouldn't be that hard to make to do what you want, just call convert with the -crop flag to split your big image into smaller ones, then call convert with -/+append to join it back together.
