    Praise Finished!

    At last - nothing fancy but enough that I can narrate the journey through the dusty corridors, and expand and run encounters when the party gets to the appropraite parts of the map! Thanks for the Tutorial Torstan - I hope to continue my own journey into Gimp and hopefully fingers crossed I'll get better as I go along. It really is a matter of being constantly aware of Layer in which I am working, and where I'm placing stuff at the time.

    That anyone gets anything done at in EXCEL at all is a miracle in itself. I absolutely HATE that program.
    For me it's more of an abomination than MS-Paint

    So kudos to you for creating something useful with it.

    Thanks for this great tutorial, even if it brings painful memories from the ruins of Undermountain...

    Default thanks! and question

    Thanks very much for this useful tutorial. It's helping me render my hand-drawn beauties into, well, better-drawn beauties!

    Still, I do have a question. I'm using the current version of GIMP (2.6.11), which seems to have some differences to it. I'm stuck at the point of trying to add doors to my map. I've got a third layer ('doors'), I've got your 'doors2.png' saved to the clipboard, and am able to paste it to the center of the canvas, but I am unable to move the darned thing. This is undoubtedly my own incompetence, as I have very little familiarity with any of these computer-generated art programs. But it's a bit frustrating. I've clicked the 'rectangle select tool' from the toolbox, and when I hover over the door image that appears in the center of the map, I get an anchor and a small square with 'marching ants' (as you called it), but no move arrows. If I click it just inserts in the center of the canvas.

    I'd appreciate any help from you pros!

    thanks,

    Geleg

    edit: I read Sheelon666's posts on the previous page and they mirrored my problems. His fix of zooming in has helped me finally grab ahold of the door icon and move it. I may have solved my own problem. Thanks anyway!
