trouble loading downloaded maps

Good Morning,

First let me express how much fun my children and I have been having with this product, it has been fantastic and we are all grateful for your work,

I recently downloaded some maps for the D&D starter campaign from here:

http://prints.mikeschley.com/p856083253

I have converted the images to JPG and have saved them in the maps section of my Battelgrounds folder.

I have been unable to load the maps in the program and get an error message stating:

"MAP UNAVAILABLE - you have loaded an encounter that requires a map that has not
yet been imported into the program. please use the change map command"

I have very little tech knowledge and am not sure if I can make this work. Do I need to import the maps rather than cutting and pasting them in to the folder?

Can anybody please offer any guidance.

thanks in advance

I managed to make them work by scaling the pixels down by 10% in gimp.

Problem solved.

regards

Were the maps over 4000x4000 pixels?
