    Post Helloooo!

    Hi everybody. I've been playing D&D 4E as the DM for several months now and am at my wits end with trying to figure out how to create/use quality maps for my players. I'd love to be able to use Photoshop CS2 to much better effect than I currently can. I also have CorelDRAW 11 and Adobe Illustrator CS2, so any links to tutorials or pointers would be most appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Welcome Aboard!

    Plenty of fantastic photshop tutorials available here, be sure to check them out. I also suggest checking out the finished map and contest archive forums.

    Looking forward to seeing what you can do.

    At the bottom of the home page there is a How To/Tutorial forum. You will find OOOOOdles of tuts on all kinds of styles and software. The ones for Gimp and Photoshop are quite compatable with each other so don't ignore the Gimp ones either.

    Look into the Work In Progress forum as well to find maps that you like and see how they were created. Plenty of ideas there as well.

    Check these out and you will be making great maps in no time
