It is ok to redo your map over in Gimp because the more the redo your map in gimp the better you learn the program. There are also a lot of great gimp tutorials on Youtube. Don't worry about the time it takes to do this because the more you work on your map the better it will be in the end. great job so far my friend, I cant wait to see further progress on this.
No, I don't have to redo it (Paint.net is quite capable of layers) but updates will be slow for a bit as a find my way around the program.
Since I already know how to work a graphics problem, I should be able to learn it reasonably quickly.

It's closer to gimp than MS paint (the extremely simple program that comes free with computers) and it has most of the basic features of gimp (layers, blurs, various special effects, roll and pivot, etc.) but lacks some of the finer points. I thought it would be alright to use for drafting the map.
I'll have switched over to gimp before the next update comes out.
