After much trial error, I finally made a map on MS Paint. I have 2 questions about it:

How do I Copy and Paste it into the forum?

It won't copy directly, and it doesn't give the "properties/URL" option when you right click like the other forum images do (e.g. the ones for your profile).

How do I select the colors that Dave has for his maps?

There is only one red (50%)and one pink option (30%), and when I try to customize the colors, it asks for 3 digit numbers. What numbers are the forum colors?

You need to host the image online, on a server like Imageshack.us or Photobucket. They'll give you a direct link to the image and you'll paste that URL between the

I don't use either of those websites. Do you have do the whole join them/set up account routine?

So there's no way of doing it without a third-party-website?

Imageshack lets you host images without joining.

Alternatively, you could upload them to the Atlas Forum Map Gallery.

Thanks! I had forgotten about the gallery, lots of good stuff there. I left a comment on one of your maps (to narrow it down, it involved France).

Ah. I'll go track it down and I'll answer it via PM. Smiley

It's actually not a bad program, when used effectively.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

For simple maps, yes. Better than the GIMP, for sure (which I'm forced to use because my old Photoshop doesn't work on sh**tsta).
