How to illustrate with your own pictures the Icons of your maps in your computer:
STEP 1- Pre-select a map and an image from your pictures you want as an icon for that map. (I usually bring both to the working area first. this is how it works best in our Windows programs: (You might need an extra program like "VSO image resizer'' Download : http://www.obviousidea.com/windows-software/light-image-resizer/ ) Or another which can do the job.
STEP 2 : First convert and save your image to the (point) bmp (.bmp ) format.
STEP 3 : resize it to 32x32 pixels (standard size pictograms) Or like 40x40 pixels if you want it to be bigger..
STEP 4 : Then click right on the mouse, and change the extension name again to (point) ico (.ico),
Ignore the note 'extension might not be useful any more' !
STEP 5 : Go to the map you want to change your pictogram for, click right on the mouse , and go to Properties.
STEP 6 : There you go to adapt and change pictogram; Click Yes and a choice of many pictograms will appear from where you can choose one.
STEP 7 : Above that , there is an option for you to upload your own new pictogram or icon from the place it is in your computer and bring it to the program.
STEP 8 : Click Yes to change the old pictogram into the new one.
And so you can illustrate with your own creations the Icons of your maps in your computer.
