Is there a GIMP plug-in or technique to divide an image based on the grid?

This is probably a long-shot, but I was wondering if there was a way using GIMP to divide an image based off of the grid or a similar tool, into separate files?
What I'm trying to accomplish is converting many of the wonderful assets from the community into doodads.
I don't mind doing each item individually, but it's taking up a lot of my time. Time I would rather spend mapping or writing.

To my knowledge, there is nothing like what you're describing. Doing each one manually is the way to go. There is other software out there that takes sprite sheets and splits them up into individual images, but each sprite grid has to be the same dimensions, and this would mean you would probably have to copy and paste a bunch of the items you want to turn into doodads around so that they conform to the appropriate dimensions and such, so you might as well just do it manually anyway :)

I use imgonline.com.ua/eng/cut-photo-into-pieces.php for splitting up images for doodads. Using the regular grid, the B etc. tiles are split using the setting 16x16. Hope it helps.
It's good for smaller items, the bigger ones you'll need to do by hand but it won't be as bothersome.

Add guides where you want to cut (the grid can help to position the guides, but it won't be used by itself) and then:
Image > Transform > Guillotine

if its similair to photoshop, you can also create an easy guide grid (48x48) and use the snaptool so you can use the select too afterwards
on 48x48 easely and copy past in a new file. there is also a tool outside gimp, ShoeBox which can make seperate files for you fast and easy.

it might be a bit complicated, but when you get the hang of it, its plain easy and there is alot of options as well.

@cabfe I don't use GIMP because I find it too frustrating but this feature sure seems cool and worth taking a shot.

I tried the website Mishakoc recommended, It does exactly what I needed, and very quickly.
It even zips the individual files in folders to help keep everything organized. It's better than I could have hoped for.
Thanks everybody!
