    I'll admit that the first time that I looked at it I didn't even see the mountains because my eyes were looking at the lightest part as being sea, not land. Once you add the woodcut, that will go away.

    Thanks for all the advice guys (Pasis - you have more faith in me than I have). Believe me, once the baby arrive all my free time will vanish (i'm on a semi-break right now) so I'm making the most of it while I can.

    Jykke thanks for the tip, but I'm not using photoshop but Drawplus X3 - it's not bad, but it doesn't quite have all the little bits and peices that PS has (including exposure correction) and has a tendency to crash if the filesize gets too big. I've put in some sea lines...any better?

    All the best

    ah, I just assumed so as you have Photoshop CS2 listed on your software And it's looking better now I have to say. I can imagine that the full size map will be just awesome!

    Ah I need to change that. I'm waiting for CS4 but until it arrives I'm stuck with Photoplus...which is a pretty good package for the price!

    Looks to me like you're on the right track for what you want to accomplish. No real concerns, but there is a curiosity.

    Assuming you're going for the parchment look and all, I like the subtle shadows going on in the background. I'm also seeing horizontal lines (again, shadowed) that are occurring with a pretty regular frequency. An intended effect or an artifact of some sort?

    Thanks GW, it's intended, meant to be the grain of the paper...perhaps its too obvious.

    Naw, don't think it is too obvious, at least not for most, I sort of fixate on things like that from time to time.

    LOL well it's less obvious when you look at the map full size (you're looking at a crop of a small part of it).
