Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a map, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
Let's take a look at how the map was created so that if you are inclined to…recreate it yourself, you can do so. And this is the finished version. …I am looking to the Layers panel. I am going to turn off the SF layer so that we…hide that detail of the bay area. We're left with just an outline of the state…of California with this semi-transparent triangle pointing to that circle that marks the spot.…On the outline of the state, there are a couple of effects applied and if I…open my Appearances panel, I can throw both of those away so that we can…recreate them, they are an Inner Glow and a 3D Bevel and Extrusion. So I will…select the outline of the states and then come to the Effect menu. We'll do the…3D first of all, Extrude & Bevel, let's turn on the Preview and this is just…going to give the whole thing a bit more visual interest. It's is looking a bit flat without this.…
So I can spin this little Preview around here and watch how that affects my map…on the outboard and I can also -- I just punch in the numbers that I want. …

Q: The instructor explains that doubling-clicking on an image while holding down the Option key on a Mac will automatically open the image in Photoshop. However, the image opens into Preview instead. Why is this happening?
A: Before this feature will work, the correct file type associations must be set up, so that TIFs and JPEGs open with Photoshop and not with Preview.
From the Finder, select any JPEG or TIF file, then Choose File > Get Info. From the Open With drop down menu, choose Photoshop and click the Change All button. Repeat this process for each of the different file types you want use. You need only do this once and it should work from now on.
