Hi, Today I will teach you how u import a picture to a map in your MineCraft server!

What u need: ImageToMap( http://www.mediafire.com/?3p2eid0ns2yexpm), A 128x128 picture(Make sure that your image doesn't have TO much black in couse it it will turn out green)

1.Open imagetomap.

2.Drag your 128x128 picture in the blank sidebar with the options above it.

3.Left click on the image that you just imported.
If you did i right the picture should come up on the left of the sidebar.

4.Now u can edit the image by your choice with the edit tab above the sidebar.

5.If ur done with your image u need to export it.

6.Go to your server file Than go to your world(normally called World) than Data If there's already a map like map_1.dat u need to export your image to map_2.dat.

7. Go back to ImageToMap Than go to File>export as image i already have 3 maps so i need to call my map map_4.dat but you guys properly need to call it map_2.dat so type map_*.dat in filename and save as PNG thats very important otherwise it won't work!

8.Go back to Server>world>data and drag the file you just created in to your data folder.

9.You are done now start your server and do /give NAME map:* (* means the number u gave it like u just created map_2.dat than u need to type /give NAME map:2.


Any problems, tell me i will try to help u!

How do you go about calling it in 1.9? I created the file, however in game this command doesn't seem relevant anymore.

What if you're using a version under 1.7? Then you can only type the id.

Ok you have a problem. The program your using is a bad one. Most of the map image converters can use ANY size and it wouldn't matter about the black thing. Just saying.
