    Default Height maps drawn in PShop or Gimp?


    I take it some of you guys use height maps for producing mountains. Correct?

    I wondered whether "fairly" realistic height maps could be drawn from scratch in PShop (or Gimp. I'm not familiar with Gimp)
    I quickly drew this height map at a low resolution just as a test. (if you look at the image, I only tried this on one side of the mountain range. Ignore the blob at the back)
    I then imported it into Leveller to see if it worked. It seems to.

    Is this sort of thing useful to you? If yes, then I'll do some more work on this. I can then share as to how I did it.

    Interested or is this something you already know? (sorry, I'm a new boy here)

    Feedback please ....
