Generate x copies of a message

I'm working on splitting a retrieved image into tiles so I'm thinking of cropping it x times to do this.

But this means I need each incoming message to trigger sending x messages in a row for processing downstream.

I feel this is simple to do but I'm not coming up with anything so far

I can do with with Blockly but as always, I'm wanting to do it with core/contrib nodes :slight_smile:

Maybe something like this

[{"id":"4a9707e1946312fe","type":"inject","z":"bf9e1e33.030598","name":"","props":[{"p":"payload"},{"p":"topic","vt":"str"}],"repeat":"","crontab":"","once":false,"onceDelay":0.1,"topic":"","payload":"","payloadType":"date","x":110,"y":2080,"wires":[["84968c4d.2ce338"]]},{"id":"84968c4d.2ce338","type":"change","z":"bf9e1e33.030598","name":"","rules":[{"t":"move","p":"payload","pt":"msg","to":"hold","tot":"msg"},{"t":"set","p":"payload","pt":"msg","to":"11111","tot":"str"}],"action":"","property":"","from":"","to":"","reg":false,"x":320,"y":2080,"wires":[["4ee9550.854c22c"]]},{"id":"4ee9550.854c22c","type":"split","z":"bf9e1e33.030598","name":"","splt":"1","spltType":"len","arraySplt":1,"arraySpltType":"len","stream":false,"addname":"","x":270,"y":2140,"wires":[["5c5c0d21.811a74"]]},{"id":"5c5c0d21.811a74","type":"change","z":"bf9e1e33.030598","name":"","rules":[{"t":"move","p":"hold","pt":"msg","to":"payload","tot":"msg"}],"action":"","property":"","from":"","to":"","reg":false,"x":470,"y":2140,"wires":[["948680af.a2fc58"]]},{"id":"948680af.a2fc58","type":"debug","z":"bf9e1e33.030598","name":"","active":true,"tosidebar":true,"console":false,"tostatus":false,"complete":"payload","targetType":"msg","statusVal":"","statusType":"auto","x":660,"y":2100,"wires":[]}]
