I'm getting a 'forbidden' message.
Is the site/tutorials down for anyone else or is it just me?
Yup, me too...

Looks like the site is hosed right now.
That is one reason we encourage all tutorial authors to host here

Hey, great tutorials. Kinda easy to follow, but I do have problems with understanding how to create the rivers as stated in the Basic Black/White Alpha Channel tutorial (from 2.0-2.2). Don't really follow what you do here. Is there some more simple way to do it? Or if there some way to see it really step by step, more so than it already is in the tutorial? Anyhow, thanks for great tutorials!
yeah thats the part im stuck on too. i just dont understand it. I'm using CS4.
The wording says:
To create territorial borders, go back to your first image mentioned at step 1.3. Using your magic wand again click on a black area. While you have your selection, create a new layer above your cool looking map and activate it. Make sure you have white as your foreground colour.
Edit > Stroke > 1 pixel
2.1: Deselect (Ctrl+D) and using your move tool, move your layer around your map to section off your territories where you want them. Erase, cut and move, rotate where you see fit. You can even use the edge of the document stroke as straight line to make hard line boundaries as you get in American states.
Im able to select it and right click to layer it. but after that im lost. what do i deselct?

That's pretty nice work.

What happened to these tutorials? I viewed them a few weeks ago and now I get a 404 Error when I go there. Does anyone have these saved in any format?
Sadly not me. Pity it was a great tutorial and had some methods which I have not seen used elsewhere.
