Hello, there. I've been working on a map for a fake nation that I've created, Mkuki. As you can see below, I've gotten the shape I want of the country, the major cities, rivers, and a mountain range. My map is a .png file. I'm wondering if their is any way I could upload it to my copy of Campaign Cartographer 3. Any help is appreciated.

Inspired by African cultures, I'm guessing from the names? That's very interesting, not often done! I'm sorry I can't help with your question, I'm not a CC user so I don't know how that works, but I do hope you figure it out! Fantasy needs more Africa :D

You can insert the PNG as a background using Draw > Insert File.

When you set up the file, make sure its aspect ratio (width:height) is the same as the image you're inserting. The easiest way to do that is to simply to set the size equal to the image's resolution (1005 x 512 in the case of this image).

When you perform the operation, you'll have to click twice to indicate the corners of the image. Typically start with a click at the upper left then click again in the lower right.

It worked. Thank you so much, Midgardsormr.

Thanks and yes. Swahili was my inspiration.:)
