Linux Tutorial Blog: Sometimes you'll want to crop the same area from multiple images (think of taking the contents of the same window from a load of screenshots). Of course, you could fire up your favourite image editor to select and crop over and over, but, as usual, there is a better way. This short tutorial describes an efficient way to do this for a theoretically infinite amount of images.
