If you have Microsoft PhotoEditor, you should just be able to crop your image and save each piece as its own image. You could probably also do it in Paint, but I don't think it has rulers, so you might not get an exact slice.

I am trying to crop the image.
But it is giving an alert box showing that
Resulting image must be atleast 1x1 pixels.
How can I do the crop ?

Hi Maya ... here goes ...
1. Open your image. (Say, Image1.gif)
2. View --> Rulers
3. Assume my image is 2 inches tall and 5 inches wide.
4. I want two images, 2 inches tall and 2.5 inches wide.
5. Go to Image-->Crop
6. For Crop Margins enter, Left: 0 , Top 0, Right, 2.5, Bottom 2.
7. Save image as Image1_slice1.gif
8. Open original image again.
9. Go to Image-->Crop
10. This time enter, Left 2.5, Top 0, Right 5, Bottom 2.
11. Save this image as Image1_slice2.gif
PhotoEditor is not the most intuitive program in the world. If you had photoshop, you could just draw a select box around the image and crop. Hope this helps!

Connie,
Thanks for the well formatted help. Appreciated.
But my image is behaving strangely.
I think I have to try with Photoshop now.
Thanks ,
