    There should be simple tools to work with rasters by the cells they are comprised of. It would be nice to have a way to select raster cells and clip/export to another raster. Instead of clip by polygon or rectangle which will force a resampling of the raster data, this new tool would clip existing raster cells out of the overall raster by the exact cell boundaries, instead of by a clipping polygon boundary.

    For example, I want to preserve the original raster as much as possible, however I also need to split the raster into several subsets for storage and delivery to separate users.
