This is the second map I have made using Photoshop. I created it using a mix of the Saderan tutoria (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?8086-Award-Winner-Saderan-%96-a-tutorial&highlight=Saderan)l and the Ascension Atlas tutorial (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?4084-Award-Winner-My-atlas-style-in-PS), though the parchment layer was done through experimentation. The map is comprised of two "layer groups," a parchment group (top) and a map group (bottom). The parchment layer has a Hide All layer mask, which can be manipulated with the brush to reveal the map below. There is also a country in the North-East section of the map which is hidden on the parchment group, and only the major cities, capitols, and highways show up on the parchment layer. I have yet to name all the towns.
