Well I have never actually used the base64 method, but from all the searching I can't find anything that says how to use it in a sprite type situation.  My best guess is that you would define the placement of the image just like you would using a normal css sprite.  You don't actually need to decode it and why would you, it's encoded for a reason.

Thanks for your example that explained a lot.

 

Is there anyway I would be able to save the sprite image so I can edit it?

Thanks

Yes, copy all the text highlighted in green (the text between  url("  and  ")  ) from your post and paste it into your web browsers address bar. Now can right click and save the image to your computer and apply what ever edits want to apply.
