Create a Fantasy Map in 12 Easy Steps


I came across a very simple way to make your own fantasy maps (Thanks to LaurelQuade).

All you need is a picture of a cloud and Photoshop (CS4 in this case).

1. Open your Cloud image in PS

3. Right Click your image > Click “Select Inverse” (This will select your cloud)

4. Click Image > Adjustments > Threshold

5. Move the Threshold slider so that the cloud is completely white

6. Hit OK when satisfied

7. Click Edit > Stroke

8. Change Width to 2 or 3 px (This will outline your cloud)

10. Click OK

11. Change your Primary color selection to Green

12. Using your Fill tool, click inside the white areas to make them green

And that’s it. You now have a map to work with!
