I'm a web developer, and I never used any slicing tool, although I use GIMP
mainly for my website mockups. They way I do is simple: I draw a rectangle
selection over the part I need, then I press CTRL+SHIFT+C (copy visible) and
then CTRL+SHIFT+V (paste the copied to a new image). Then I save the new image
as .png or .jpg.
I do it that way because you don't need so many images in most cases... Also
there are often color gradients in websites where you only need a 1px image
that is repeated through CSS. I doubt that there is much time to spare using
such slicing tools. Maybe you like this way too ;)
