Vicinity Map to light

Recommended Posts

I used MapQuest to create a vicinity map. I used a program call Snap My Screen to capture the portion

of the map I needed for my vicinity map.


I then inserted it into my layout sheet. I then printed as a PDF, then sent to my plotter for printing. The

vicinity map image prints out way to lite. Is there away to get this image to print out darker ?

I have had the same issue.  The Mapquest colors don't have enough contrast to be used as-is. Best fix I have found is to bring the image into Photoshop or equivalent and play with brightness, contrast, and even the shadow tools in PS, help to give more contrast before importing into Chief. Once you do it a couple of times, it ends up only taking a minute or two to accomplish.
