Paul O'Brien showed me a really cool way create buttons that use CSS to do most of the work, but which have an Image Slice to create an interactive, rollover effect.
To do this, I need a way to...
- View an Image/Button
- Take a "slice" of it (e.g. 4 pixels wide)
- Save the 1st slice
- Make a copy of the slice
- Flip this 2nd slice
- Splice together the 1st and 2nd slices
- Save as an image file (e.g. png, jpg, gif)
Can someone recommend open-source software that will do this on my MacBook?
I'm leery of GIMP because it is so hard to learn, and also leery of Inkscape for the same reason plus the fact that it looks like it requires X11?! :-/
OS X Preview lets me select and create a slice, but I don't see how to splice together two images like Paul is recommending...
