Hi! I'm wondering how to create a sprite from part of an image.

I thought this would work (based on the GetImage help page):

Setvirtualresolution(640,480)
ResetTimer()
swap()
//SetPrintSize(28)
//SetPrintColor(255,255,0)
//Print("G")
LoadImage(1,"Image.gif")
render()
GetImage(2,0,0,32,32)
CreateSprite(1,2)
Do
SetSpritePosition(1,Random(0,600),Random(0,400))
Sync()
Sleep(250)
If Timer()>10 Then Exit
Loop
End

But all I get is blackness. What am I doing wrong?

Welcome to the forums

LoadImage doesn't put the image onto the screen, it only puts it into memory. You'll need to paste it before you GetImage().

You might want to check LoadSubImage, which allows you to load images straight from an Texture Atlas. You'll need to check out the example code to see how it works, you describe your Texture Atlas coordinates in a text file.
