Creating the Image

The image you create must be of TGA format and either 128x128 or 256x256 pixels in size. 128x128 is highly recommended
as this will minimize the overall filesize of your map. What you put in the image is completely up to you, this is very
much a creative process. For the purpose of this tutorial, I have created an image using the Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne
logo, as seen below.

Image I am using for my minimap.

Importing the Image File

Inside World Editor, load the Import Manager under the Module menu. Click on File, Import and open the TGA file
that you have created. Now you need to change the custom path. Double click the item inside the import manager, and
check the box that says Use Custom Path. Change the path to "war3mapPreview.tga" with nothing before it and proper case.

You're done! This is what mine looks like when I test my map.
Finished minimap image.
