    This is great! Now the next step is to try your hand (using the same techniques and perhaps a couple more) at a more intricate map.

    Think you're up to it?

    I think you are!

    Hi Mad,

    I wrote a big tutorial about resampling and why its a good idea to do maps big and resample down to final size. I also wrote it leaving a space for a topic that comes up time and time again but I never had time to fill it in so I just did as its about how to resample images that are just B&W up - say by 300% or so

    What you need to do if you have lost the original is to separate the dark from the paper which is not so hard to do with some judicious use of brightness and contrast and that should leave you with black on white line art.

    See #13 of this thread...
    [Award Winner] Bitmapped Images - The technical side of things explained.

    for what to do to get that 300% bigger with no jaggies. But the better way is to resample down from a big original.

    Hope that helps.

    Sorry.. didn't mean to give ya a tutorial on how to use a brush. Sometimes its hard to get out of STEP>BY>STEP mode....

    You could always sketch a forest (or mountains) out and create a seamless pattern, then use your masks to brush them into/out of the areas you need. Even using a couple on different layers, this can work to great effect on parchment maps....

    no problem about the step by step tut thing, i wasnt trying to give you a hard time or anything, i actually appreciated your small tut, i didnt know about the lock feature, i always was having to reset it, which got annoying, i was just saying what i knew. I did do a tut on making those patterns for both mountains and forests and any other symbol that needs to be like that, it was on YouTube, i would do that, except i have NO artistic ability whatsoever which is sad
