I'm trying to discet an image file with Image::Magick
and I'm running into some problems. I can
get it to work, however, it's slow. The image(s) are 640x480 and I basically need to chunk it up into 40x40 squares. Reading the docs, the only thing I found that seemed to be useful is $image->Crop(). The only problem with that is, it alters the larger(original) image, as you would expect. The only way I saw around this was to reread the original image from disk over and over again. That's pretty slow.
Is there a way to load the original image once and then piece it up? I'm notall that familiar with image manipulation so I'm a little unsure of some of the methods mentioned.
