Instead of selecting both, right-click on the "top" one. Merge down should then be an option in the right-click menu.

Sure there is! Instead of using clouds and a hard mix layer, just import your lineart coastline, and do a fuzzy select to select the sea. Then fill the sea black, invert your selection, fill your land white, and continue from there.

GIMP? How do you import an image from CC2 Pro/CC3 into it and modify the image? Is there a basic "cartographer software user's guide" to GIMP? I would love to be able to add things to/from maps as necessary. As I understand it,
1. You save the file in an extension that GIMP understands (.bmp, .jpeg, etc.)
2. You open this file in GIMP
3.. How do you select what you want to alter?
The tutorials are over my head - they are not sufficiently simple (I may be thick, too); I will have to do the contrast by hand, line by line, if necessary. I appreciate all the guidance I can get!!

So obviously this tutorial produces a fairly large scale map. Does anyone have any good estimates as to the scale of the maps in terms of miles per pixel?

Adding Hills/Mountains from Scratch?
I don't know if he's still around, but I'd just like to thank Ascension for this tutorial. It was my first attempt at a map (and one of my first real ventures with Photoshop) and it came out brilliantly after only a day of work.
I had one question I was curious if anyone could help me with. I was wondering if there was an easy way of editing the mountain and hills after the process is completed. Say, I'm done, but decided I wanted to add a little something here, remove something there, etc. Removing is easy, I know - just erase the hills, etc.. Adding... seems to be a little more complicated.
