    Have you ever wanted to view an image on a map ingame? ImageOnMap allows you to do it! (Inspired by ImgMap)


    ImageOnMap allows you to load a picture from the Internet to a Minecraft map.
    • Loads an image from a URL onto a map. PNG, JPEG and GIF are supported.
    • These images will be saved on your server and reloaded at restart.
    • Big pictures will be cut automatically into several parts! As example, a 1024x1024 picture will be cut in 16 maps.
    • Your image will be centered.
    • You can put your map in an item frame.
    This plugin is a free software lisensed under the GNU General Public License (version 3 or above). The source code is published on GitHub. You can also get unstable development builds here.

    The latest version is only compatible with Minecraft 1.13+. For older versions, please use ImageOnMap 3.1.

    Quick guide
    1. Ensure that you have a free slot in your inventory, as ImageOnMap will give you a map.
    2. Type /tomap URL, where URL is a link to the picture you want to render (see the section below).
    3. Enjoy your picture! You can place it in an item frame to make a nice poster if you want.

    Commands and Permissions

    /tomap <url>
    Renders an image and gives a map to the player with it.
    • This command can only be used by a player.
    • The link must be complete, do not forget that the chat limit is 240 characters.
    • You can use an URL shortener like tinyURL or bitly.
    • If you want a picture in one map, type resize after the link.
      • If you want to resize to multiple maps, add the witth and height after resize: e.g. /tomap url resize 2 4
    • Permission: (or imageonmap.userender—legacy, but will be kept in the plugin).

    Opens a GUI to see, retrieve and manage the user's maps.
    • This command can only be used by a player.
    • Opens a GUI listing all the maps in a paginated view.
    • A book is displayed too to see some usage statistics (maps created, quotas).
    • A user can retrieve a map by left-clicking it, or manage it by right-clicking.
    • Maps can be renamed (for organization), deleted (but they won't render in-game anymore!), or partially retrieved (for posters maps containing more than one map).
    • Permission: imageonmap.list, plus imageonmap.get, imageonmap.rename and imageonmap.delete for actions into the GUI.

    /maptool <new|list|get|delete|explore|migrate>
    Main command to manage the maps. The less used in everyday usage, too.
    • The commands names are pretty obvious.
    • /maptool new is an alias of /tomap.
    • /maptool explore is an alias of /maps.
    • /maptool migrate migrates the old maps when you upgrade from IoM <= 2.7 to IoM 3.0. You HAVE TO execute this command to retrieve all maps when you do such a migration.
    • Permissions:
      • for /maptool new;
      • imageonmap.list for both /maptool list and /maptool explore;
      • imageonmap.get for /maptool get;
      • imageonmap.delete for /maptool delete;
      • imageonmap.administrative for /maptool migrate.
    About the permissions

    All permissions are by default granted to everyone, with the exception of imageonmap.administrative. We believe that in most cases, servers administrators want to give the availability to create images on maps to every player.
    Negate a permission using a plugin manager to remove it, if you want to restrict this possibility to a set of users.

    You can grant imageonmap.* to users, as this permission is a shortcut for all user permissions (excluding imageonmap.administrative).

    Code (YAML):
    # Plugin language. Empty: system language.
    # Available: en_US (default, fallback) and fr_FR.

    # Allows collection of anonymous statistics on plugin environment and usage
    # The statistics are publicly visible here:
    : true

    # Images rendered on maps consume Minecraft maps ID, and there are only 32 767 of them.
    # You can limit the maximum number of maps a player, or the whole server, can use with ImageOnMap.
    # 0 means unlimited.

    The 3.0 release is a complete rewrite of the original ImageOnMap plugin, now based on zLib, which adds many features and fixes many bugs.

    This new version is not compatible with the older ones, so your older maps will not be loaded. Run the/maptool migrate command (as op or in the console) in order to get them back in this new version.

    You will find amongst the new features:
    • New Splatter maps, making it easy to deploy and remove big posters in one click!
    • No more item tags when maps are put in item frames!
    • Internationalization support (only french and English are supported, for now; contributions are welcome)
    • Map Quotas (for players and the whole server)
    • A new map Manager (based on an inventory interface), to list, rename, get and delete your maps
    • Improvements on the commands system (integrated help and autocompletion)
    • Asynchronous maps rendering (your server won't freeze anymore when rendering big maps, and you can queue multiple map renderings !)
    • UUID management (which requires to run /maptool migrate)


    • Fixed permissions support by adding a full set of permissions for every action of the plugin.

    • Added 1.13.2 and 1.14 compatibility
    • Dropped compatibility with 1.12 and lower
    • Improved some UIs
    • Added support for images' resize to a specific size: you can do /tomap https://url/image.png resize 2 2 to get a 2×2 frames image.
    • Status messages are sent in the action bar instead of the chat
    • Added back statistics (you can opt-out in plugins/bStats/config.yml)
    • Added an update checker

    Data collection

    We use bStats to collect basic data about the usage of this plugin*. This can be disabled in the plugins/bStats/config.yml file.

    * See the statistics page for a complete list of what is collected

    Would be a great plugin if the author actually replied and fixed issues. The plugin in it's current state will kill your server's TPS on start-up.

      Hello! I published a new version with improvements and 1.13/1.14 support. But I never got an issue with timings regarding performances bottlenecks. Could you provide such timings, if the problem is still there? Thanks!

    Le plugin à l'air intéressant mais est indisponible en 1.13 est-il possible de faire des cadres personnalisés en 1.13 ? Merci et bonne chance !

      Bonjour ! La version 1.13/1.14 arrive tout bientôt. Par contre, je ne suis pas bien sûr de comprendre ce que vous voulez dire par des cadres personnalisés ? SImplement le fait d'y mettre des cartes avec des images, soit le but principal du plugin (et alors, oui, bien sûr, ce sera possible), ou autre chose ?
