    Question Overlay a grid on my map

    I tried searching around here, but I couldn't find an answer, though I'm sure this must have been asked before. Is there an easy way to overlay a grid over an image in the gimp. I don't just mean the working grid, but one you can actually print out, for use as a battlemap. I get that you can just overlay grid paper of the right size, but what about maps of different sizes? Is there an easier or a more efficient way to do it than that? Might be a useful thing to sticky somewhere.

    The simplest way using gimp is to create a new layer and render a grid. I believe it is under Filter->Render->Pattern->Grid.

    Then save/export (depending on the version of gimp) a png/jpg.
