I am trying to export images from the QGIS print composer, the exported image has a basemap that is loaded from an XML file following this questions method. The export doesn't look at all like the image I see in the print composer see below and I'm trying to understand why.
What I'm trying to do is simply make a decent looking map without obvious tiling with readable labels. Perhaps I have to use a satellite only image and remake with my own labels. The map is a HERE nokia hybrid map
