    err... what do you mean "making" an image?
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Dev-C++ is not a graphics editor. It's a programming IDE.

    If you want you can draw your map using a graphics editor, use a resource editor to create a resource file and program your game using that resource file. That's one option

    You can use the sample icons in $(DEVCPPDIR)\Icons, or get a program that can create .ico files.
