QuestionSplit one image into six smaller, component images. Pin

I have a deck of Elder Futhark rune cards I hand drew myself some 25 years ago. On a large paper card on a drawing board. Back then Google was the belated Messiah, and online services such as rune drawing or font composition where very scarce. I did it all my little old self with a T-square, ruler, pencil, and other such steam-punk devices.

Having rediscovered the deck, I find the accuracy and attention to detail I put into each card remarkable; runes are drawn with black koki pens, on white card; the uniformity of line thickness close to perfect on most cards, and the points where lines meet have zero smudge or overlap, or whatever. These look, except for one or two, like they were printed.

I want to capture all these cards for part of a digital work, and because the cards have aged some 25 years, their edges are not perfect, although each card is still a very good 80mm x 100mm. I scanned sets of six cards, in a grid style, on A4 paper, and used a white brush to remove edge markings and other unwanted spots from the cards. I now have six perfect enough composite images of 5670mm x 4730mm (3 cards wide, 2 deep on each image). These 'final' images are all nearly perfect size to be divided into 6 smaller images, that make up the large ones, So, from 5680mm wide, we get three cards 1890mm wide, and from 4739mm wide I get 2 2365mm cards.

Now, how do I do this? Using a selection rectangle in Paint.NET is not for the feint of heart, and not much ambition for this task. I have done an incredibly lot of google research before asking here, but nearly all results advised I use the ImageMagic [^]convert command. I have tried several variants of the convert command to no avail, e.g. one gives a very small image out but still containing all six original images. Various other attempts here met with similarly strange results.

The basic command I\m trying to use is: convert 'LargeImage.jpg' -resize 120x120 thumbnail%03d.png
