Anyone know where you can upload a file like this?

Problem with scrambled/bad imagery has been resolved. The 8-bit aerial black and white imagery from the Seamless Server was being converted into 8-bit JPG files, which the Garmin units apparently don't support. Version 2.1 now converts all imagery into 24-bit format before further processing, and aerial imagery that had the problem before shows that it works. I hope. Download it here:

This KMZ file appears to have multiple overlay tiles ; G-Raster only supports KMZ files with a single image overlay.

Can you tell me what am I doing wrong? The KMZ file contains a single 1500x1500px jpeg file  (saved with Google Map Saver, calibrated in Google Earth), but I get this message from G-Raster 2.1 when I try to load the KMZ file.

As usual, you are doing nothing wrong; I introduced a bug into the last version that causes this problem. Just uploaded a fixed version of the program (version 2.2); download and install it, and it should work fine:

Thanks for the quick fix.
The first 4096 x 2048 px map looks amazing on the Oregon :)

I have created a KMZ file in Google Earth.  When I try to run G-Raster on it on the file, the program just hangs.  The underlying map was a PDF that I converted to a JPG using Photoshop Elements.  I think I read somewhere that this can cause problems.  Anyone else experience this or know a solution?

Thanks

Check to make sure you have the latest version (2.3). If you still have the problem with 2.3, email me the KMZ file at leszekmp at gmail dot com, and I'll take a look at it. It shouldn't have anything to do with it starting life as a PDF; once it's converted to a JPG, it should work fine.

Don't use accentuated letters in the name of KMZ file.

Don't use accentuated letters in the name of KMZ file.

I don't think this is the problem - G-Raster generates its own names for both the embedded JPG tiles and the final output tiles, and those don't include any accents, punctuation, underscores, anything that people have said might be a problem. And it has no problem reading files that include those characters.
