    Flawedspirit,

    I liked this tutorial but could not find it in PDF format. I copied your original post and made it into a PDF. Hope you don't mind.

    Okay, I'm having a hard time rendering the mountain heights on the gray texture layer because the following path does not seem to exist in my copy of Gimp

    "Filter -> Render -> Lighting Effects"

    I DO have "Filter -> Light and Shadow -> Lighting Effects"

    but once I open that filter, of the following settings, only Light Type and Intensity exist, along with a whole bunch of other variables. Is your Lighting Effects a custom plug-in or is it an issue with differing versions of Gimp? I'm using 2.68

    Light Type: Directional
    Intensity: 35
    Gloss: -15 (0 is fine too)
    Material: 100
    Exposure: 0
    Ambiance: 0
    Mountainous: 100

    Thats because this was made with Photoshop and not GIMP. I am sure there is a way to make the conversion, but I don't know it off the top of my head.

    Praise Very nice tutorial

    Hello, Flawedspirit.

    You've created a very nice, simple tutorial that results in a great map! Thanks for sharing this with us.

    arakish, I was just ready to turn Flawedspirit's tutorial into a PDF document when I went to page 2 of the thread and saw that you had already done so. Thanks!

    TO ALL:
    I've added Flawedspirit's tutorial in the Photoshop section of the second post on page 1 of the Tutorials in PDF Format thread.

    Enjoy.

    Regards,

    Vandy
    In the end you will see, you is you and me is me.

    Nice tutorial! I love it for simlicity and result.

    But its more about pseudorealistic mountains. There is no any real-looking mountain chains - just some kind of "giant hills" with classical-standard for fantasy maps mountains texture in sattlite-atlas style. Sorry, if I was too bad with this. Im not english native speaker, so, sometimes balance of polite talking and so on is rather diffucult for me.

    Everything is okay, this just some opinion.

    I was having trouble using this, because at one point, the directions didn't match what I saw in the program. Then I realized I was using a tutorial for the wrong program. I had thought this was a GIMP tutorial. Heh. Great work. It still helped.

    I'm guessing this is for PS and not Gimp? I'm new to both and this tutorial is really confusing to me.
