Thank you, ++

Welcome Aboard!

You can try GIMP, it's free, has nearly all of the same features as Photoshop, and has great support.

Welcome, Saru. A few questions to help - what operating system does your computer use - Windows, Mac, Linux, other? Do you already have or know any graphics software? Many different applications can produce maps - some easier than others, but often it's better the one you know even if it is not perfect. Is that map one you have started, or is ir just an example of the type you want to make?

Steel General's suggestion of The GIMP is good - there are some tutorials you could learn from, and even some of the Photoshop techniques can be used or adapted.
