    My pleasure. It helps me to procrastinate the four projects I'm supposed to be working on for school.

    At the end i have decided to change the mountains, and do it like this. I´ve used an atlas, i extracted the mountains, applied a cutout filter, and darken it... what do you think? any idea to improve the quality?

    Not bad at all, I wonder if you use some kind of lighting effect (like Ascension often uses) if it would give them some texture and depth?

    You might want to look at Ascensions tutorials to get the exact settings he uses for his hills and/or mountains (maybe he'll drop a response in this thread), but its under FILTER > RENDER > LIGHTING EFFECTS.

    I've only used them a few times so you'll need to play around a bit to get a outcome you like.

    Here are two different types of Lighting Effects that I use, the first for mountains, the second for flatter stuff. I'm not sure how it will come out since your using an image from an atlas, but you will need the mountains to be grayscale.

    Ok, i find a problem then... i have 2 kind og greys for mountains. I extracted it from a physical map, so they are mix in the same layer... has photoshop any option to select from a layer only 1 color? dark grey for example?

    If not i´ll get crazy selecting all - Thanks anyway

    You can try SELECT > COLOR RANGE and try to separate the grays into their own layers - not sure how well that will work.
