Starting to map
I have only been a member for a day now, and have attempted two tutorials today. I am having some problem with two in particular.
I've tried a few tutorials and they haven't been too successful. But I guess it's because I'm new to mapping. I've had around 2 years experience with photoshop (on and off) so I know how to use most of the tools, ect.
The step I'm stuck on is step 5 - 9 on [Award Winner] Making a continent in photoshop and 4 - 7 on [Award Winner] My atlas style in PS.
I fill it with clouds like normal. Then it says to duplicate the layer, that's fine. Then it says create a new layer. That's fine, edit -> fill 50% gray, set the layer's mode to hard mix. I do all of that, and I don't get the same outcome the tutorial gets.
Please could somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks a lot!
Give me a full screen shot so I can see your layers and the image so that I can make a guess at what's wrong.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

I was just re-creating the steps and taking screen prints as I go. And I found out, I was doing step 8 wrong! Instead of doing: New Layer - > Edit -> Fill -> 50% gray. I was doing: New Layer - > Edit -> Fill -> Gray, and then changing the opacity to 50%. I've done it now though, thanks for your reply, if it wasn't for you I wouldn't of figured it out Thanks again.
