    Breaking up multiburst shots

    Svelte_Albatross
      My camera has a multi-burst (rapid shot) option that my wife loves to use. On the camera, they display as cool 16 frame animations. But on my computer, they import as a single 960 by 1280 photo. I would like to automate the task of chopping these photos up into 16 distinct 240 by 320 photos and then save them as an animation.

      It seems like I should be able to do something like this pretty easily using the history pannel, but I don't know how to select specific areas with enough precision to make it work. Any suggestions?

      Here is a sample file in case I did a poor job explaining the situation...

      Thanks in advance for any help you can send my way.

          I'd do it by pulling guidelines over the image and carefully aligning
          them where you want the image to be cut. Since you'll want to do further
          editing, set the export format to PNG 33. Choose File > Export, and for
          slices, slice along guides. Once they are exported, choose File > Open.
          Press Shift and select all the exported images. Check the Open as
          Animation box. Do your animation thing.

          Here's a quick version I exported from Fireworks in SWF format.
