I have, But am no expert on, Illustrator CS2 and Photoshop CS2 and I'm trying to follow HansomeRob's Tutorial and I'm stuck. I have got my map layers from FT just as it states in the tut, I have opened up Illustrator and set it up as instructed. One minor thing here is my illustrator image doesn't look anything like his illustration but that's not the problem. I have gotten up to the place where I use trace and then expand and ungroup. I get a bunch of tiny green or blue squares all over the map. Then he says select the white and delete. Delete what white? Layer 1 2 or 3? And when I try to select nothing happens. I am either doing something wrong or a step has been skipped in the tutorial I don't know about.
As I said I'm not at all familiar with Illustrator.
I got stuck at the same point too. I made myself a stiff drink and stared at illustrator for awhile – did not seem to help. No matter how many times I read the tutorial, I get confused.
