1. export your map with r.out.gdal as a geotiff. Be careful with what kind of data you have, how many categories (Byte, Int16, etc.)

2. Open with GIMP and edit BUT DO NOT resize the image, rotate, crop or

3. Save as Tiff with other name than the original GeoTiff

# For steps 4,5 look at [1]
4. Export with listgeo the geo-metadata from the original GeoTiff

5. Apply the geo-metadata to the Tiff file with geotifcp
