I have several map images exported as jpg before August 2013 which fit nicely together because I used the tile numbers to make sure adjacent areas were covered without overlap and the maps were the same size as one another.

I now want to fill in a gap - I have the tile coordinates, but I can't see how to make use of them in the new 'share' process. Any hints?

in which format do you have the "coordinates"? Example may help

These images are at zoom 13. As an example, one image is built from xlow=4000, xr=20 and ylow=2660, yr=20. This gives a square map which includes Bettws-y-Coed and Snowdon in North Wales.

I'm not sure I understand the question, so what follows might be way off what you're asking for, but here goes anyway...

If you mean tile co-ordinates in the sense of latitude and longitude, then if you look at somewhere using the OSM website and move the map slightly, you'll get a URL such as:

Change the zoom (15), longitude (24.9555) and latitude (60.1898) to your desired values and you'll

If you have the tile URLs from before and want to obtain tile URLs for a gap, then just move the map to your desired location, ensure that no overlays are shown by closing any search boxes etc., right-click the map and "view image". You'll get a URL such as:

("view image" is what Firefox calls it; other browsers may use different names).

I've just added a comment to my question, giving an example; I don't have lat+long. This means it looks more like the second path you suggest, although isn't that just a single tile?
