    This may seem like an elementary question, but what is the text effect used for the gold chrome-ish country names? I can't seem to get the PS settings right. It really is a good contrast.

    I just got back from vacation so I'll look this up tomorrow night, it's all layer styles so I'll post up the screenies.

    Question

    Can't get it to work. There either a step missing or I'm too dammed dumb to figure it out (I attended public school in the south).
    I'm using PS CS5 on a Mac (I know, elitist asshole, or just ass according to the Ex), and I'm consistently unable to get past step 21. I can get to that step, but once done I don't have anything remotely resembling the picture in the tutorial.
    There are, for me, some sticking points.

    Step 10, when Merging Down, should I end up with a layer named "base" or "ocean"
    Step 20, I end up with 6 layers each time (eight successful attempts that have made it to step 20)
    Step 21, my feeble public school educated mind can't handle all this at once.
    So first I'm supposed to chose the "base" layer. Then I'm supposed to go to the Select menu, the choose Inverse. BUT, I can't. There's something that I'm supposed to do first, it just escapes my mind (was it ever there?) What is the point of this step? Maybe if I know what I'm supposed to accomplish, I can (with the help of magical cats) come up with a work around that won't fall out of my head.
    The picture in step 22 is not what I have at point. No matter what layer I hide or not. I'm assuming, again, that I'm supposed to be in the "Land" layer at that point. I've done that and ended up with this[Award Winner] My atlas style in PS-screen-shot-2010-10-10-11.01.57-pm.png


    With all that, where did I go wrong?
    Anyone, so my internal sarcasm can end.

    Did I read that someone converted this tut to GIMP? Anyone have a link to it? Thanks.

    Ctrl-click on the base layer (in the layer palette)...on mac I think it's cmd-click. Then click back on the land layer. Select-Inverse. Hit the delete key on the keyboard. Deselect. Your land will now be trimmed to the shape of the base layer.
