Splitting A Photo

Is there a way to split a photo into equal sections in PSE11? I tried to find the answer myself but no luck.

 

Thank you! :)

Is there a way to split a photo into equal sections ...

I change the canvas size. For example, if the photo is 6x4, I will change the canvas size to 3x4 with the anchor set at the left. Save as... then undo and repeat, but set the anchor at the right.

 

This gives me two 3x4's that are the left and right halves of the photo.

 

I can do something similar to get three 2x4's.

Another way to do it is to select the entire width, and note the pixel count, e.g. 1020 x 640 (lower left corner in PSE7.) Turn on Window, INFO if it's not already showing. Deselect all (CTRL +D) then use the rectangular marquee (M), and WATCH the size in the INFO window as you do it. Let's say you want 1/4. drag the marquee to 255 x 640. Copy the layer that's selected, CTRL + J.

 

Deselect all. Make the background layer invisible. SNAP the marquee to the edge of the new layer, drag another marquee to 255 x 640. Select the bottom layer, make it visible, and Copy the layer (CTRL + J). Repeat from the beginning of this paragraph.

 

It's faster than it looks by reading it. Hope this helps.

Awesome, thank you for the tips! I'll give it a try tomorrow. Spent 7 hours driving for work today and three hours manning a booth. I'm pooped!!!
