Any tool to convert a map file to an image?

I don't mean the minimap, I mean the map itself, as a large (or rather not small..) jpg or bmp or png (or any other image format..)?

I've heard for such tools for Heroes 3, yet was unable to find something like this for Heroes 4. I rather not print screen and combine and all this work just for a single map...

Is there any comfortable tool?
Or an updated version of the map editor which has this function?

Thanks

It sounds like what you're looking for is nwcExcalibur, which saves an image of the map (not the minimap) to your h4 directory. It's just one of the cheatcodes

I used this a lot to see how far I progressed when creating a map.

I think this is for the Winds of War version.

Nice! Works perfectly! Do you know if there is a way to add the grid to the image? I see a grid option while in battle, but not while traveling in the game. Maybe you're familiar with some way to save the image with the grid tiles?

Thanks, but this seems to do the other way around - to generate a map from a picture?

You mean the grid overlay like what you get using the Editor? There is no option that I know of to add the grid overlay when using nwcExcalibur. It would have to be something that was done manually after getting the image.
