Slice and Dice Images with ImageMagick
You can use the convert command that comes with ImageMagick to extract parts of an image.
You can cut out a 100-pixel-wide chunk from somewhere in the middle of an image:
$ convert -crop 100x+0+0 orig/wrapperbg775.gif slice0.gif $ convert -crop +200+0 orig/wrapperbg775.gif slice1.gif $ convert +append slice0.gif slice1.gif wrapperbg675.gif
You can duplicate a 100-pixel-wide chunk from somewhere in the middle of an image:
$ convert -crop 100x+100+0 orig/wrapperbg775.gif slice100.gif $ convert +append slice0.gif slice100.gif slice 100.gif ↪slice1.gif wrapperbg875.gif
Note that there was no need to specify the height of the image in any of the above commands. If you need to adjust the height instead of the width, the steps are similar, but use -append instead of +append to paste the slices vertically.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
