[Archive] map creating programs?


hey guys i started working on a campaign that i wanna make and i would like to know if any of you knows a decent map creating program to use (preferably free)

thanks in advance!


There’s an entire series of youtube videos about creating fantasy cartography using Adobe Photoshop. Here’s a start…


I believe the same videos are available via podcast - 'Fantasy Cartography with Adobe Photoshop’

Hope that helps!


I downloaded a javascript app called Mapmaker. Unfortunately, this is so generic that I can’t find it online any more. It makes hex maps, lots of tiles to choose from. PM me your email and I’ll send it to you when I can.


This one isn’t free, but word is it’s pretty good:
