    I recently finished my first map with CC3+, and I've been trying to find the best way to print my map and export it to an image file. I've been messing around with saving my maps as a rectangular PNGs and JPEGs, but I can't seem to find the perfect set of numbers. Either the file is too large for sharing online (20-40mbs), or the image quality of the map suffers. Is there a better way to do this, such as saving the file as a rectangular PNG or JPEG then scaling the image in GIMP or Photoshop?

    Thanks! Any help is appreciated, I'm obviously new to map-making haha

    Saving it in a high resolution from CC3+ and then reducing it in an image editor is probably the easiest, since it is faster than re-exporting it multiple times, and you can easily experiment to find the size that fits your purposes best.

    Alright I'll try that. What would I use for the pixel height, width, and PPI when exporting the image from CC? Or does it not matter, as long as it's a high number?

    It really depends on what you need, but for online use, starting with 5000 by 5000 should give you a sufficient large image that you can then experiment on with resizing. Just ignore ppi.

    So this is what I have so far. I'm messing around with printing but I get the general concept. Thanks!
