Free software to chop up your JPEGs


As a public service announcement – if you need some software (on Linux but may well compile and run on other systems if they support Qt) to chop a big JPEG up into smaller files, I have written this (in my case to support building a test set for a neural network).

It’s at https://github.com/mcmenaminadrian/TestSetCreator and it’s GPL licenced (v 3).

GNU source-highlight, another great toy and tool

How did I never discover this before – GNU source-highlight, which also has a Qt-based front end.

The one key tip I have if you are using it to generate LaTeX for use with LyX is to make sure you scrub the comment at the top of the output.
