File Description
This program helps you to make picture maps (in minimap window) like SCPM program. Well, it uses different algorithm for converting pictures, so it makes more colourful pictures. You can also set passable / unpassable terrain.

IMPORTANT: This program does not make Starcraft maps itself. You need BMP2SCM utility to finish your map. It is because I don't know how to code/decode Sc map files (I haven't spent much time by trying that). So this program gives you all needed numbers for BMP2SCM saved in txt file (in the same directory where picture is).
Maximum colours of original picture is 256 (thats because of later convertion at BMP2SCM - you need convert each colour, so I recommend max 100 colours to don't take you so much time). Picture quality is still acceptable with 50 colours in it.
Program supports only bitmap files!! (like BMP)

I made this program in 2007, but I wanted make more things and also make some help. But I'm not sure if I will continue on it anymore, so I uploaded this version. Program is quite simple to understand. Just play with it a while and you'll discover how it works. You can make much nicer pictures than SCPM does in my opinion.
