Any paint program that can save in .pdf format should do. The fancier the program the better, of course. I'm a Photoshop guy.

 

The one complication is the game's method of producing knockouts - adding an extra Alpha channel (besides the usual Red/Green/Blue) in B&W to designate where the knockout holes are. That's how you get individual leaves on trees.

There's a way to get around that, I think. You can supply the Alpha channel as a separate piece of B&W art named 'filename-alpha.bmp'... or some variation of that name. Its been years since I've seen it in use so I may have the naming wrong. Hopefully you can just add a separate channel to the file.
