importing pictures in H3map editor

is it possible to import a picture with a certain shape into the Heroes Map Editor?

i need this because i'd like to make a map in the shape of a country, and it'll take a lot of time to make it by hand.

It can't be done.

One thing to remember is that a "picture" is just graphics. A homm map must be intelligent. For example a mountain is not just graphics, it must have the attribute that it can not be walked through. Water is not just blue graphics, it requires a boat to cross. Everything on the map must have some type of intelligent attribute.

If you are not good at drawing, maybe you can take a map of the country you want to copy and use an X-Y grid to transfer points from the country map to the homm map. Or better yet, use a digitising tablet if you have one.
