    Here You go Chashio . My skills in communication are a little rusty so if I missed something or you have questions let me know ! There are other settings within the style you can play with but this does the bulk of the work.

    It looks easy enough but I think I'm incapable of easy things so late at night. I got a solid bar instead of separated lines, so I messed it up somewhere. After a bit of fiddling, I did figure out that you can do a similar thing using the Outer Glow. Made a short tutorial. I'm tired. In fact, I'm really really tired. I'm going to bed.

    But thank you for the tutorial! Even though I'm completely inept, I did learn something!

    Chashio Perhaps you had the range % to low in step 5. Also if the size value in step 3 " size equals spread " is too small then they will all be clumped together. I like the fade effect your technique gives so maybe a combination of the two techniques might yield a better outcome. As stated there are many tweaks to get the details. Photoshop has many roads to get to the end place .

    Thanks! That's probably what I did. I'll try it again later.

    I hope my tutorial made sense. I was trying to fit everything into that little blue space (I was tired, so naturally I made it more difficult for myself than necessary) and it may have become overly cryptic. One should be able to do the fading effect with yours, too, theoretically; they both use the contour box to adjust the lines.

    It would be horrible if it didn't.

    @Chashio: used this to lovely effect in this months challenge. It had never occurred to me to use the contours in such a way - such are the wonders of photoshop!

    Chashio Yep I went over your tute and sure enough the diminishing height of the peaks also creates a FADE effect on my bevel method . Thanks for the tip. I like the fade effect alot. "Photoshop has many roads to get to the end place " Sometimes this is good and sometimes it gets you lost for awhile.

    @lostatsea: What's wrong with lost?!

    @vorropohaiah: Oh nice! I'm glad you found it useful, and coherent; I put orange juice in my coffee this morning.

    This is nice but looks like stairs

    Both ways i can edit manualy, like erasing, but still not get the way to change the shape of the line

    I will try to come up with something besides tracing each line with your favorite brush... which I do on occasion. Not wholly fun. You could make the effect a layer (right-click effect in layer panel and click: Make Layer) which will put it on its own layer below the one it was affecting. Then you can create a layer mask for it and fill that with textures or patterns or just scuff it up manually with a grungy brush. I'll think on it.

    Here's an example of using a pattern fill on a mask to affect the style of the coastal lines... this example shows one of the actions I posted earlier, before and after I apply the mask to the layer.
