    Many thanks! I'd rep you, but I apparently need to spread it around a bit first. Every time you post, I see how much further I have to go in learning Photoshop. I obviously need to start experimenting with more filters--the use you get out of motion blur far exceeds what I would have thought possible before you came around.

    Actually, I only used motion blur maybe twice in my life before I started working on city sized maps. I've learned more about PS in the past 2 or 3 weeks that I've been here than I did in 5 years of online tutorials for other miscellaneous stuff like removing red eye and making realistic gold. Gimme a challenge and I'll figure out a dozen different ways to overcome it...I'm one of those kinda guys. Low down on my list of challenges right now is GIMP, I'll just follow the other's lead there

    I think it would be GREAT if you took some of these just learned techniques and translate them to GIMP also. Each program has somethings it does that are exactly the same, some things only it can do, and some things can be done in one but with a different method in the other and being able to translate that would be sweet!

    This one, I think, is done. I added some basic grafix as I'm not not all that talented at creating new and interesting borders and text fx. I make a tutorial for everything new I try out so that I can go back and look at my own notes and change things when I like. I'll put that up in the tuts section if anyone wants to have a go at it. Tried to incorporate the stuff into GIMP but to no avail, I need much more experience with it. Do I post this here or in Finished maps?
