Knute Snortum, i saw you have removed the code given by Andrian. Although the user may provide a code from his side. we shouldn't stop anothers in posting the code and helping them out. Please re-think.

Split from this thread because we usually discuss this sort of question in the Ranch Office.

We work on the assumption that users of this site are trying to learn programming. Simply posting a solution wouldn't provide any learning experience; you gain nothing by copying somebody else's code unchanged. Look what it says on the forum you posted on:-

We're all here to learn, so when responding to others, please focus on helping them discover their own solutions, instead of simply providing answers.

You were given several helpful suggestions; since you hadn't shown any sign of trying any, I think Knute Snortum was right to obscure the complete solution. Had you followed Piet Souris's suggestion, you would have found a solution quite easily.

Yeah, apologies if I broke some rule but decided that my code wasn't a complete solution as it only cut one image in half horizontally, OP wanted to be able to cut it both ways and process multiple files so there was a lot of room for improvement. It also didn't look like some school assignment.

Joseph,

I, and I alone, will decide the rules, policies and "shoulds" of this site.  Please re-think.

If you learn how and why we do things now, you are welcome to make suggestions in the future.
