Completely lost in Giide's "Ascension's Atlas Style Maps" for GIMP
Has anyone used this tutorial before? I downloaded the PDF, along with the original Photoshop version, as it has the actual instruction on it, but when I tried to follow the steps I just got completely lost halfway through step 1. I don't know if it's not telling me exactly what I need to be doing with my layers, or if I'm misreading something but if anyone can give me any pointers I would love it.
I get about halfway in to step 1, the part where you make the all-grey layer called "Clip", then move on to drawing the continent over it on another layer. The trouble is, I can't see that other layer because it is under the grey, and moving that layer on top hides the grey. I have no idea what I have done wrong and I seem to be the only one to have encountered a problem with it...
Any love out there for a guy on his first map?
