That issue came up on page 3 of this very thread.
I should really get this into the document along with the "river fix" I mentioned here.
I'm pretty swamped at the moment but I'll get to it eventually.
Well I muddled my way through the tutorial. I too ran in to the demon that was Create Clipping Mask. Luckily after a moment of frustration I looked back at this thread for help and found just the clarification I was looking for.
I have to say that this is an excellent tutorial and I really appreciated the step by step instructions as well as the menu item clarifications in red. When in the middle of a big project like this the last thing you want to do is to have to stop and look up how to do a command that is mentioned in passing.
So I now have a very sweet looking map for my home brew campaign. My players should be very pleased. I know I am. Just got to get names plastered all over this baby and I should be ready to roll.
Looks good Trog.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

The document in the first post of the thread was updated to address the issues that came up.
Thank you for the wonderful tutorial. I used it as my introduction to Photoshop 7.0 and got hung up in a few steps only because of my unfamiliarity with the program. I will definitely be giving it another shot, now that I have a better idea of what I'm doing.
As you can see, the result of my efforts is not as defined as it should be, probably because I slacked on a few layers. I like the way the rivers turned out but next time I'll make them darker. I think my elevation and forest layers are a bit weak, and I also need to add more lakes. Overall, I spent at least 12 hours on this map.
I think it looks pretty good, especially for a first run through.

Did a quick glance over and can tell this will help me endlessly in my campaign to build my first map. Many thanks for taking the time to make it, share it, and helping us newbs out.
