1. I am interested in creating a battlemap using photoshop. I have searched various sites for a video tutorial, or even a picture based, but all I've found are tuturials that show regions and continents. Has anyone found a tutorial that would help me.

2. Also, could someone pleasetell me what program was used for the first map in the following link : http://shaiya.aeriagames.com/node/414
My guess would be photoshop, but since I'm new I can't be sure.

3. If someone wants to make a video tutorial, what program would you suggest?
