First of all: I'm from Germany, so please apologize the (hopefully few) mistakes in my English ;-).
I always loved looking at maps, whether historical or fantasy ones (especially Lord of the Rings), due to the fact that my imagination had no borders while looking at them.

I thus thought it would be great building my own maps on the PC with Photoshop. You know, like "Can't be that hard to do". But I have to admit that it's, indeed, quite hard work to get a decent result.

Looking forward to learn the mapping basics and maybe more from this forum, I hope that I can soon post my first passably looking maps!

I hope for honest feedback :-).
