Default Tile Inserting With Paint


I'm going to show you how to tile insert using a method that I've adopted by using some of paint's less known features. I know there are easier ways to tile insert by using photoshop or gimp but I haven't really messed around with them yet. I'll be sure to post an updated easy way once I start tile inserting again.

What You'll Need

  • Advanced Map (A-Map)
  • Paint
  • A positive attitude


  1. Open A-Map
  2. Open the map with the tileset you want to destr-- err... I mean change
  3. Click on the puzzle piece
  4. Go to the palette that most resembles your tile's colour or to the palette with the colours you want to change it to
  5. Now go Picture>Save Tileset 2 (or 1 if you're editing the default tileset)
  6. Open your tileset and tile with paint
  7. Paste your tile into the tileset
  8. Click on the eyedropper
  9. Left click on your tile's colour
  10. Click on the eyedropper again
  11. Right click on the colour that resembles the tile most or the colour you want to change it to
  12. Click on the eraser
  13. Hold control and press + - to resize your eraser to the size of the tile (or the size you want but resizing the eraser to the size of the tile is faster)
  14. Hold the right button and drag the eraser across the tile (or just right click if it's bigger than the tile)
  15. Repeat steps 8-14 until you recoloured your whole tile
  16. Open A-Map again and click load tileset 2 (again 1 if you're editing the default tileset)
  17. Check in A-Map if the tile looks like the tile in paint
  18. Voila, you have just inserted your first tile!


I hope this tutorial helps anybody who doesn't know how to tile insert or if it helps out the seasoned tile inserter that wants an alternative way to tile insert. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to post below.

Great, this actually worked for me!

But how could you make the pallete remain\have your own, the same and don't recolor it?
