yes, basicaly 2 points JB
The dimension, i printed in a A1 format and not satisfacted with the resolution. I will finish all the shape and the city positions for now. After it will follow 2 steps if i not get a help before :):idea:
1- Will do small maps and detailed of each region, so i can re-draw my "icons" like town and montains with a better quality.
2- will reformat the size and make a general map, with the new icons i can just show the kingdowns and the frontiers
Now u said something that is causing me problens, the size of the file, when i am running PS it is like 12 gb... is it right?:?:
And ty Kaila, it makes me keep doing :D
12 gb ... Yikes, that's large. But I am not a PS user myself, so I have no clue if 12gb is unusual. Let's ask that as a separate question - in a thread dedicated to that issue alone.
The map is very clean and resolution is really good!!!
true? the dimensions arent big?
When you say 12GB, is that how much virtual memory Photoshop is using? Photoshop will happily eat up to some percentage of your physical RAM (it's under Edit>>Preferences:Performance) as you add layers and move things about. I wouldn't be terribly surprised at this memory usage if you're using lots of dynamic effects and have a whole lot of undo states stored.
300MB on disk means that Photoshop will probably be using 4 to 20 times that amount of memory for its internal buffers and then more again for undo states. If it's less than your physical RAM you probably won't see too much of a slowdown.
Flattening similar layers (like mountains) might help with this memory usage a bit, but you'll lose the one-layer-per-object editing that you might have become accustomed to.
You can simply lower that virtual memory by setting the Protocol limits in the preferences to 5 or less. Sure that makes hard to undo things but save your GBs.
Some of my maps reach about 20GB space, so well I have an extra 100GB hightspeed harddrive only for processing of Photoshop.
I was lazier and just put 32GB in the machine. It's about the same speed as a hard dive these days, but the newer motherboard and everything else to support that much memory was a wee bit more than than.

probly using a lots of layers with effect, specialy Texts. now my file got 150mb when saved, helpd a lots.
Follow now my first idea wut to do with the map, is just a idea, since i am re-draing my montais, citys, castles...
Ok, guess that is all. Now just need details all map and guess it will looks like repetitive :D may i call it finished?
