    huh, interesting. I guess linking layers is a Photoshop thing? If it's in Gimp I don't know it yet. This might be one of those areas I need to learn about...

    Doh! Sorry 'bout that, my bad.

    It's too bad there isn't an option to flatten selected layers together much the way it flattens everything when it goes to a .jpg or .png file. Oh well.

    As said, merge from the bottom up where possible.

    Another thing I sometimes I do is toggle visibility of a set of layers then do New from Visible then toggle visibility again. By the same token there is also the destructive version Merge Visible Layers.

    Gimp 2.8 will bring us layer groups, so things will get better when that happens!

    Been busy the last few days but I finally got back to making an update. They got a lot of Cities, towns, forts etc. I went back and forth on what to use for these but finally drew these up.

    It's 3am and way past my bedtime so I am out of here.

    Added a border, an inset with Map Lengend, color tweaks and a bunch of little stuff I don't remember.

    Very nice but maybe you could make the text in the legend slightly larger, at this size they are a little hard to read and the lower case e's look a bit too much like t's. Just a thought.

    @Lonewanderer - I will double check it on the full size version. Thank you for pointing it out. This is 50% the size of the original so it might be ok there.

    Looks great! I really like the colors you picked and the detail in the mountains/tress! Awesome work!
