Conversation Between Ascension and pinkyfishman

  1. 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.
