Much like Spooks question, are you trying to make a custom thumbnail for a video - example for youtube? Or a custom Icon for a file/application on your PC?

Youtube thumbnails:

Paint could be used, I think it can edit .BMP and .JPG atleast. There are free editors available that have a few more options available though, including 'layers' which helps when playing around with images.

I need to post the maps with the course lines and rally points for the campaign, an example can be found on my thread in the events section of this forum. The way it is now the waypoints are too small to see clearly so the map needs to be made bigger when people click on it. Much like what was done with the recon photos of the targets.
I downloaded paint.net for the task but all the tutorials seemed to be about posting an original creation on youtube. All I want to do is make a thumbnail of the map in COD's mission builder.
