    I've just downloaded your tutorial about the atlas map (award winner). The step where I've got to create the borders I cannot get to work. You say to "click on the 'base' layer and copy it then hide the 'base' layer and move the 'base copy' layer underneath. Grab the magic wand tool and click somewhere inside the main continent then Select > Inverse hit delete and deselect Ctrl-click on the 'borders' layer then hit delete and deselect. Rename this layer to 'countries'. Duplicate this as many times as you have countries. On layer '1' use the magic wand on a country then Select > Inverse then hit delete and deselect. On layer '2' click on a different country and repeat the process. Continue until you have each country on its own layer." Whenever I use the magic wand, I select everything in the lay. When I select > inverse, I inversed to the ocean. I'm using Photoshop CS3, and cannot get this step to work. Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey thanks for the rep Ascension. By the way, I noticed that someone by the name of Hellyingod posted a couple of messages on my profile page, but which you deleted. Was this some kind of spammer or bot or something?

    Cheers Ascension. They are persistent buggers! Only noticed them when someone made an actual comment that wasn't spam on here. I figured I was more popular than I thought or they were bots.

    HI ! First of all, happy birthday (a little bit late, sorry). I just discovered your amazing job on maps ! Really brilliiant ! I'm currently trying to follow your explanations of your tutorial of "Ascensions' Atlas style". Because of english terms used on photoshop (I'm living in France and use the french version of this software), things are a little bit difficult. But I'm trying. As I finish my map, if you want, I can send you the French translation of your tutorial. Sorry for my english, I read better than I can write. Bravo !
