Slice image into equilateral triangle pieces
Hi all,

Would anyone know if it's possible to slice an image in to equilateral triangle pieces of the same size in one go, rather than copying a triangular part of the image one by one?

Many thanks,

Sank

Nothing that I know of. Since any image is rectangular and the triangle is part transparency it should be possible to set up some set of masks and guides to guillotine the image.

Thanks for your advice rich2005, I'm pretty new to Gimp, so not sure how to do that! I'll probably revert to copying individual triangle shapes from the image and pasting them into separate files.

Many thanks Ofnuts, that'll certainly make the task easier for me.

@Esper, I'm thinking about developing a mobile game to have images split into various shapes, i.e. triangles. The pieces that make the image will be rotated randomly, so the player will need to tap on them to rotate them and form the final image in a limited number of moves and time period.

Kind regards,

I've never coded in Gimp before but have done a little Python programming, but will try to learn how to code for Gimp.
