I came across a program lately, that might be of interest.
It is called 'ACME Brick Masonry Designer'. It has nothing to do with 3D;
It can be used to visualise a brick wall in a great number of varieties, even
combinations. But when you save the image, it saves a second image, by default
called: untitled_alpha.png; that's our bumpmap.
Nothing wrong with the great block-wall macros of chrisb, but sometimes we need
something different or quicker to put up.
The help-file is online (http://www.accurateimage.com/acme/help/ ) so check that
out first, if you wish, before you decide for the free download.

have fun,
Tjeb

After creating something you like, in the File menu click 'Save As Image'.
Choose your destination directory and there you will find
one .bmp file and one .png file. If you didn't change the file name, the
resulting default names are: untitled.bmp and untitled-alpha.png.

To increase your choice don't forget to play with the Materials option in the
Products menu.

Strange. No png file is created here, only the bmp (or jpg etc).
