Texture atlas with Photoshop slicing

I needed to create a texture atlas and I wanted to use a tool to read off the coordinates and manage it easily. I tried looking at MapWin but it looked too complicated. So I opted for using Photoshop and just slice the images. But not to create separate images. I just use slicing for easily getting the coordinates and dimensions of the slice. If you double click on a slice with edit slice tool, you will get that information in the dialog box that comes up. That's all I needed. It would be a different story if I had hundreds of images but for now it's manageable. Maybe because it is still a prototype :)
