Hello. I've been looking at this forum for a couple of days, and it seems like a good place to get the advice of experienced people on my first map. I have just spent three months working on a detailed map of Europe in the year 1300 (see below), and have finally finished it. The problem is, it definitely does NOT look like a professional map (though that is not surprising as I did it in MS Paint). Any ideas on how to make it look like a "real" map (And I know I'm going to have to label it)? Keep in mind that I am not willing to purchase photoshop, and the most advanced editing program I'll be using will probably be GIMP.
