Hi,

I have exported a map with OpenStreetMap as a PNG-file. Now I want to select an area an highlight it to visualize in the image where I am going to conduct research. What is the best way to do this, considering I do not have any experience with Photoshop?

Thanks!

Hi

Is your research area defined in OSM, such as a district of an administrative area, etc?

https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/1eRc

rel[name="Greater London"];
way(r);
out geom;

Then Export->Map->PNG

Hi,

this is not an OSM related question.

But usually I use GIMP instead of photoshop (open-source).

Here are a few pointers to help you :

But you might want to use other, simpler, tools, like LibreOffice Draw, InkScape and so on. GIMP and photoshop are not designed for this kind of task.

Regards.
