Happy to be here
I want to say first and foremost that I am amazed at the collection of artists here. I thought I was one of few who enjoyed map making in itself. But, I am in awe of the talent and collection we have here!
I started making maps a long time ago, just pen and paper but I has only been within the last year (after picking up a Wacom Tablet) that I have been experimenting with Photoshop and other digital forms of art. And I must say it has taken my world building to a whole new level.
I look forward to feed back on my work and giving praise to the work of others!
P.S. I tried uploading a finished map into the finished map thread as an attachment but I waited over an hour and it still did not load the map (it is rather large though, 3500 pixels square, in JPEG format). Is there something different I should be doing? Maybe I need 5 posts before I can upload? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Welcome to the guild, jljansen! I'm looking forward to seeing your maps, I'm glad you found this community. I just got a tablet myself (like it's a few days old) and I'm just figuring out how I'll use it...
There are some limits to the size of files you can upload. I believe a jpg is 4.77MB maximum. When you click "Upload Photos" in your gallery section you'll see a little blue question mark icon in the upper right corner of the upload window. Click that and it will tell you the maximum sizes for various file types.
Yeah I just noticed that. I will compress the image to fit and upload it tonight.
Thanks for the help!
