Getting my colours right!

Hi all

 

So I thought I'd make a map, just for giggles, see if I can be creative.

 

I've followed the excellent tutorial by Thuztor and it is all making sense.  Except for the map itself... I get hundreds of errors on converting my BMP as it has non-approved colours.  After much headscratching I now realise it is because where two colours meet it is creating a third mixed colour.

 

Is there a way (I have Paint, Paint.net and GIMP) to stop this happening?  Like if I put blue down it is blue, and green is green, no yellow on the borders.

 

I feel the answer is probably obvious, but I'm not good with paint programs :)

 

#Edit#

Why of course I realise my error the second I click post... Pencil is the key!  I have used brushes up to now, and obviously paint will blend.  Now I have a pencil picked it all seems to be set colours.

 

Yay!  At least probably yay!  We'll see later when I try the map!

in paint.net you can continue using the brush tool, but as long as anti-aliasing is enabled, it will try and blend/soften the outer edges, resulting in the non-approved color errors. if Anti-Aliasing is disabled then you will only use the selected color.

Will the Warning Pose a problem in the End though?

You might end up getting empty tiles which have colission if I remember correctly. I'm not a 100% on that though... I'd fix them. It's a pain, but it might help in the end.
