Hi everyone,

I've been lurking around this fantastic web site for a while now, taking to me all kinds of good advice which I have been using making different kind of maps, mostly for fun.

Now I have come to the point where I would like to make my own strategy games mostly based on rules from already existing board games e.g. the Europa Series.
I would like to make my own boards from either computer crafted maps or from hand drawn maps. The question is how do I "hexmap" these?

I would like to make two different kind of boards:

- A board with a hexmap overlay (both numbered and un-numbered)
- A board where all borders, shorelines, rivers etc. follow the hexgrid

Does anyone know how to make this in e.g. Photoshop?
