Hello,

I have just achieved my first map (just a land with water and mountains, nothing amasing, but that's my very first try), and I find the result good, except for the rivers... Do you have a tuto to help me with this?

I made this map with Photoshop on mac, in about 2 hours, including the "how to use photoshop" step...

That's strange, 'cause I see it. It's the image on my profile.

You may try the direct link I've just added...?

The main thing is to put some in some wiggle (curves) and to make the width of the river vary (don't make it all the same thickness).
