    Thanks to waldronate for the tutorial on Wilbur. I tried it once then I tried it twice Then I scratched my head and the lights came on !! So I'm NOT the brightest crayon in the Box !!
    It took me in a better direction ! Still got alot to do and the competition is really heating up !Here is where I am going now. Read the Name " Lost at sea "

    To Frame or Not to frame that is the Question....Got bogged down and threw a frame together till my Muse came back .Does it accent or take away from the map ! ?? I have a few more areas to detail but I know which Direction I am going with it ! Also have lots of cleanup to do and a border to make if the Frame is too much !

    Good Question. Not sure. I like the overall look with the frame, but it does distract from the map ( the map is very very good BTW ).

    I think the frame kinda distracts from the map, mostly because it's so BIG.

    Here it is no frame.Lots of touch-ups. Still need to add the villages and maybe some more details?

    What a Crock O ...... I've been a Good boy saving my work frequently.Last save of my in-progress PSD turned out to be a disaster!! All seemed to be okay but when I came back to open it later that day to finish up . "Corrupt file"!!!Well I downloaded all the PSD recovery apps the best I got back was a list of layers ;All blank. The other apps didn't get even that . Well as luck would have it the windows"Previous version" was four days old so I lost Four days of tweaking. Oh Well it will give me a start for working on Future More detailed sections of this map area. So I finished as best I could using last posted Jpg as a base. So here it is !

    Wow, that really sucks Lostatsea. The finished product turned out out nice though. And I think you made the right decision to move to a smaller frame.

    Cheers,

    It's too late now, however I feel I should point out that the wood-grain in the frame isn't aligned properly. All of the frames I have seen have the wood-grain flowing long-wise. So, the sides should have the grain going up and down.

    Either way a great map and I really like the city.
