Relief Map/ Surface Map
on Jul 21, 2006 at 8:58:25 pm

I have both and illustrator and Photoshop file of a National Park Map (please don't be confused with the two
different uses of the word 'map' in this post), it came with a B/W relief map.
I've used relief maps in 3D programs before to create the illusion depth on flat 2D surfaces before, but I no
longer have access to the 3D Program. Is there any way to apply this relief map to the Illustator or photoshop
image of the park 'map' to create depth?

thanks!

In Photoshop, you need Filter > Distort > Displace (only available when you're in RGB mode).

Here's a tutorial that explains it in detail.
