I was wondering how I can get my 110+ .png map tiles conveniently into a 1:1 pixel ratio size map .png. I've been scrolling through Google and forums for the free ware game that I am modding, but the app I'm using recognizes only .png files, and I want more than 1% of the map. If you guys know of a program I would be very appreciative.

Such as this (free license for bloggers and framework developers) or this (completely free but a bit less flexible)?

    \$\begingroup\$ The second will be more useful since I can edit the length and width with text. Thanks, you saved me time, sleep and headaches ;). \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ No problem, glad it helped :) Finding stuff online is usually easy as long as you know what to search for. In this case I knew immediately that I needed some sort of texture packer or spritesheet maker so... \$\endgroup\$ Commented Dec 19, 2011 at 6:05

ImageMagick with it's convert -append can also be used for this. Though, it only does appending into one direction, but if your tiles are named ascending (f.e. tile001.png) it can still be used in a loop:

convert tile00*.png +append line1.png
convert tile01*.png +append line2.png
convert line*.png -append wholeImage.png

As pointed out by bummzack, montage will work also good.

montage tile*.png -geometry +0+0 wholeImage.png

    \$\begingroup\$ You could also use ImageMagicks montage command. As described here. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ never heard of that WOT reputation thing. The procedure outlined in the blog post works fine though. I have used it myself in multiple occasions. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ +1 for using montage. I've used that many times to make sprites from individual frames. Very handy. \$\endgroup\$
