I have been working through your tutorial in GIMP, and have a question. When I get to Bump mapping the grass, using the Bump Map filter on the 50% grey does nothing, no matter how I tweak the settings. How can I get it to work? Thanks in advance!

I'm currently stuck on the beginning of the fourth post... I have four layers (Image, Land, Noise, and White). Noise is set to Overlay and White is set to Lighten Only. However, when I decrease the output in levels when the White layer is selected, nothing happens. Anyone have an idea as to what could be wrong?

Are your lower layers set to be visible (eye icon in layer tool). If you toggle off the visibility of the white layer you should see something.

I can't read 60 pages... I am sorry if it has already been asked.
I have a world map with 2 main continents I am working on. I intend them to be different colors! The main continent is green/brown, while the secondary one is pink. Is there an easier way to do the second continent than selecting it to it's own layer and handling it separately?

Getting the coastline look "right"
I realise this an 'old' tutorial and the world has moved on to GIMP 2.8 - but to a newbie 'old' is 'new'. Very good and simple tutorial on how to create a "realistic" coastline! Thanks

Are there differences between the new GIMP 2.8 version and the older version used in the tutorial? And can I change the language settings of GIMP? I downloaded GIMP in Dutch, but as this is an English tutorial, that might be a little problem.
By the way, splendid tutorial. I am going to try it after my examinations.

I can't get past the Invert.
It's a transparent layer, so if I mark out my land in black, then inverting just turns the entire thing white.

When I have this problem, I simply add another layer below the one I want to invert, in the opposite colour, and merge them down. Then I can invert and do a colour to alpha to make it transparent again.
Not the most efficient way, but at least one that works.

I have followed your tutorial, step by step but I fail to make the same thing like you describe.

Help me to understand. It is maybe the cause of the age of this tutorial, or gimp has changed since 2007 ?
