Quote from: thepenguin on August 19, 2010, 09:30:01 AMhow does this look?
Quote from: MadMag on August 20, 2010, 11:36:24 AMThe easy and short story:When I make a map I always start in Photoshop (PS CS5 Extended), I open up my custom made .psd grid file. Make 5 layers (1 level dark, 2 level brighter, 3 brighter than 2 and so on til I get to level 5 witch is the brightest. Then I just use the selection tool to erase or the selection tool to select and fill with color to shape the terrain.

Quote from: MadMag on August 20, 2010, 02:54:58 PMsorry, I mean ppi.. works so much with dpi at work so its easy to mix..
Quote from: MadMag on August 20, 2010, 02:54:58 PMWhen I'm using 300ppi on 1050x720 and turn the ppi down to 200 ppi I get 700x480 :) So.. I have a bigger picture with greater detail when im working on the map.
