Textures have to be added in two places:
1. In package.cfg in your textures folder
2. In your {name of map}-art.cfg file, where they should be numbered sequentially starting AFTER the standard list of textures

Textures do not have to be 512 x 512. Nor do they have to be square. The key is to keep the pixel size a multiple of 2 in either direction (I have some I've created that are 128 X 512, and others that are 64 X 64). There are many programs that will re-size your pictures. I happen to use GIMP on a Debian Linux machine (GIMP also has a Windows port), but I have used PaintShop Pro under Windows in the past (the far, distant past), and I believe that Photoshop will do it, too.

If you want to change the size of the textures, MapZone is good for that.
