peterd2012 Posted February 2, 2013 Share Posted February 2, 2013 I have a lot of jpgs of old maps. I use them to try to locate where building or landmarks used to be. I have been using Google Maps/Earth and stretching opaque versions of the jpgs but the problem is that the underlying map is modern and I want to create a new map, a 'then and now' if you like. I also want to be able to manipulate the maps as I want them to look. I prefer to trace or outline them (not sure of the exact term). But because they are different styles and designs, I will need to stretch or manipulate them to overlay with each other. I am new to Paint.net but I have used layers in Corel Draw (over 10 years ago). It occurred to me that layers would be a good way to do what I want. I could build a map of sites or roads on one layer and modern locations on another layer and then fit them over each other and see the changes (or the similarities). I could also create layers with rivers or roads, ancient paths, topographical features like hills and valleys, and any other info I wanted. Then I could print out the layers of info I wanted. I would like to do it with paint.net if possible. Can anyone help? Thanks :-) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
