Try Gimp. It's a freeware that's similar to photoshop.

Missing one at the top and 1 or 2 in the bottom right.

I don't know what we're going to have to do with the information on the map to get where we need to go.

It's called paint. Comes free with most computers.

I tried gimp. Perhaps its my inexperience with this type of software but I couldn't manage it.

In the toolbox there is something called the Fuzzy Select tool. Use that and click on the white space of the image and then press delete. This will make the area around the image transparent so you can match them. You can keep each image in a separate layer so that you can move them all around without screwing any of them up.


Hope that helps.

Edit: Changed Magic Wand Tool to Fuzzy Select Tool. I'm so used to both programs I get them mixed up >.>

I'm going to try that- THANK YOU!

Open the image in gimp. Use the fuzzy select tool (looks like a magic wand) to select the map piece (I clicked outside the image, then clicked just outside the map piece once, fyi). Go to Layer -> transparency -> color to alpha, click ok. Save as png. I then opened them all in inkscape to move them around.

I have very little experience with gimp, and found this from google, so this should be pretty easy even if you aren't an expert.

For those that wanted a blanket and didn't score one in time (e.g. those busy printing/copying their map piece before trying to buy one, just like me), the mother ship has it available for $12.36 more and ships free.

Anyhoo, search using: blanket GFBLK583

I'm using Chrome and Gimp.

1) Create a 2000x2000 transparent image.

2) Right click on image in Chrome and select copy image.

3) In Gimp Edit->Paste Special->Paste as New Layer

4) Use Magic Wand on white area. Press delete.

5) Press "Move Tool" (4-way arrow) and move layer into place.

Use 2-5 for remainder of pieces.

Ok, I've never bought anything during a woot off but seriously? I clicked the button when it was still gold...it went to the login/verify payment info. I had to make a correction to it. Fixed it and bam sorry no woot for you?

Really? Is that really how it freaking works? Zero time to complete the purchase?

You joined in 2009 and never bought anything during a woot off? That must be some kind of record.

I've never had the patience for it really. I get my woot email in the AM. if something looks good -and- I have the money, I go for it...if it's a woot off, I just move on and go about my day....
Only reason I'm here right now is the dang map

I'm using Power Point for the map. Picture Tools->Format-> Recolor-> Set transparent color -> Click white space. Done. Simple.
