    Tutorial Antique-Style Maps in Gimp

    I tried to transfer Ascension's tutorial "Antique Style Maps in Photoshop" to Gimp and here is what I've come up with. It's not perfect and I guess the example is not the best, but I learned very much about Gimp while I was making this tutorial and maybe someone can use some of the Gimp techniques. I tried to include other techniques from various gimp tutorials here in this forum, especially from RobA. Many thanks to Ascension and him

    Please feel free to comment and critique. I hope it is okay that I tried to remake Ascensions tutorial for Gimp.

    Looks good to me. Remake anything you want, that's what they're there for.

    Yes, this turned out quite nicely...

    Translating Photoshop to GIMP can be bit problematic, but you've done a fine job of it here.

    I'm a GIMP-catechumen, but I do everything correctly until step 4, where it says to "right click the layer 'land mask' and select 'alpha to selection.'" From there it states that it should only select my landmass, but it selects ALL of my map. Any input or suggestions? Thanks.

    Sounds like you missed the part at the very beginning of step 4: Grab the select by color tool and click on the black part, and then hit Delete.

    Once you've done that, only your land should be non-transparent, and your alpha to selection should work.

    Don't mind me. I'm an idiot who can't read. Thanks for the help.
