    Tutorial Making rivers using the mouse [Photoshop]

    I wrote this short tutorial for a member of the CWBG, but I thought I'd cross post it here as it may be of use to people who don't have tablets.

    This one seems interesting but can you tell me what layer styleyou apply at the end ? The image is too small and my Ps is in french so I can't match it with the image... Thank you !

    Does anybody (RobA?) know if there is a similar approach that can be used in GIMP?

    I know RobA has posted a tutorial about using Inkscape to get the tapered river shape and then importing that into GIMP and since Inkscape is free, that might work for you. I ended up just breaking down and getting a tablet and it was the best descision I have made when it comes to making maps.

    There is currently no good solution in GIMP to taper a stroke along a path. 2.6 (next release) s supposed to have that feature. Until then, I use Inkscape.

    UPDATE: Here is a script I wrote to taper stroke along a path in Gimp.

    Hmmmmm.....

    If a CL can't even keep track of what tutorials we have that means something...

    Maybe we have to back-tag more threads, or organize/index them in some manner more conducive to finding them...more like a knowledgebase or something.

    Just my 2bits.
