Oh... do u mean the Minimap Preview?

You need to import a TGA Picture. For example I have here a Picture and then I saved it as JPG File. And then to make this TGA file you need to Download Irfanview and use it to change a JPG File into a TGA File (http://www.irfanview.com/).

After making it a TGA File. Open World Editor and then load your map. Click on Import Manager (F12) and Then Import File (Ctrl+I) then select the TGA File and Click Open. Then Double click the file Check the Box of Use custom Path and replace the full path with this "war3mapPreview.tga" Without the quotes. and then thats all.:infl_thumbs_up:
