Saving guillotine output
I currently have an image which will split into a few hundred images when I guillotine it. It seems that saving each output image one-by-one will be a pretty tedious task. Is there a better way to save all the files at once, preferably in the format x#.png, where x is some supplied name, and # is the number of the image?

I googled around a bit and found this (http://registry.gimp.org/node/20868) but it seems to work only on JPEG files according to the description; I need my files to be in PNG format. There's a comment saying that it's easy to port the script to PNG, but I have no experience with scripts in GIMP and don't know how to do this.

See http://gimpforums.com/thread-tiles-to-files-plugin

But talking about scripts, if you have criteria to position guides (specific spacing, etc..), a more direct script (where you specify height/width of individual tiles) would be much more useful (not even mentioning a command-line script based on ImageMagick).

I know that script and there is a good reference on the page to grid-of-guides which is a useful tool.
but (and I had to check that it is a regular gimp filter)
Filters -> Web -> Slice will guillotine into those chucks and save as png

You get a bit extra as an html file but that can be discarded.

RE: Saving guillotine output
After trying them out, both methods work handsomely for splitting up the image and undoubtedly just saved me hours of ctrl+E and closing windows. Thanks for the help, guys!
