wish to use?
this application is totally free and would be, as I am told by many that I
know who use it, quite comparable to PhotoShop.. I've not tested the
differences as I know what I need to know in PhotoShop and don't wish to
deal with the learning curve with GIMP but it is very very similar and again
might I stress FREE.

Subject: [NH] Display only part of an image?
Here's a thing I'm not sure it's even possible, but I would like to find
Is there a way to display only *part* of an image file in a Web page?
For instance, if I have a 300 x 400 px photo, can I "crop" it in
HTML/CSS in order to display just a smaller rectangle inside it (like
one cropping 50 px from the top and left, and 100 px wide?)
Where do you want to bug today?
