    Post Greetings!

    I've been looking for a place to learn a few tips and tricks about fantasy cartography, and I just stumbled onto this little slice of the internet. I get the feeling that I'll be here for a while, as it appears to be a most excellent resource.

    For the moment my focus is on world maps; if anyone can point me in the right direction for threads concerning such, I'd be most appreciative.

    Again, it is good to be here. I look forward to learning from you guys.

    Hello and welcome! Only be here "for a while"??? Let's make that a looooong while, ok?

    I do not have any specific threads to recommend, but I would say start in the Regional/World Mapping threads (obviously) and you'll see a lot. If you want specific tips, go to the tutorial section; for examples of great maps to emulate, see the reference sections.

    Also, if you tell us what software (if any) you plan to use, that would be very helpful too!

    Once again, welcome!

    Thank you for the welcome, and the road map. I'll find those threads straight away.

    I've only used photoshop for mapping, if that helps.

    Yes, that helps--and you will find plenty of help here in the Guild!

    If you do not find what you think will help you most with Photoshop, be sure to ask and some good Guildie will surely post a tutorial or point you to one!

    Welcome to the guild! I'm pretty new here, too. I use Campaign Cartographer 3 for my maps, though I also recently downloaded Gimp after seeing it mentioned here a lot.

    I would also suggest checking out the "Fantasy Cartography with Photoshop" video podcast from Zombie Nirvana games http://www.zombienirvana.com/?page_id=67 if you haven't already.
