I agree - there's a slight difference in shadow on the bottom...

A thought just occurred. The legend stands out a bit more that I'd like it to. Is there a way you could apply the same texture to the background colors in the legend as the land has just to see if that lowers the contrast. I'd like to see it even if it does in fact look best as it does here.

I think quite a most of your coordinates are still off on the small map. I don't think it's the centering, but the circles themselves. I find that when I resize my map, my army circles become distorted. So, I need to do all my circles twice (once on the large and once on the small).

I'm guessing that this is why this problem is happening. I know it's a pain, but to get everything perfect, this should be done. If I'm wrong and they're just not centered properly, then it's just a matter of redoing the coordinates, but I'm pretty sure it's the circles.

I think if you look at Seabeck, Hood Canal, Camano Island, Everett etc... on the small map you will clearly notice they are off center.

I posted earlier that I suspect this map uses army circles that are an odd number of pixels in width and height while the CC numbers are always even: 12x16. Short of recreating all of the army circles they will always look a bit off-center, which is fine really because how often are you going to see a perfectly symmetrical army count on there?

Here's what I'm talking about: note that the third example (23 pix wide) looks exactly like the circles on this map:

i did do the circle and the centering separate on each map...the armies are centered..even if it doesn't look so.. 3 pixles on each side five on top and five on bottom

it is the army circles i have chose..and i would rather not change them...i like them alot

this is Everett..

centered brush

Well I think the most important thing is that when the army is over the actual circle, it is NOT centered. And, you can't disagree with that.

I'm not sure why it is doing that, but I'm sure someone with more knowledge can help you figure it out.

I can tell you that this is an important issue for quenching. It's not something that will be shrugged off.

edit:
you could just take the circles from widowmakers' thread

In the blown up circles you posted, I count 22 pixels across in the first one and 23 in the second. So make the first one 21 and the second will appear 22?

The easy way to center your army circles.

First run your XML test to gain your image with army numbers and copy this image on top of the PSD file of you map in photoshop. Ensuring that the image is the same size and centered properly on the page.

Image

Next copy Widowmakers army number circles and paste it into a new layer.

Image

(Once copied the transparent background may become black, simply take the magic eraser tool and click on the black area once)

Image

Now take Widowmakers circles layer and set the transparency to around 50% and line it up with your 1st army number on the image. Then copy and past the circles until all the numbers are done. (Make sure you set the opacity back to 100%)

Image

Now ensure all the circles are merged into a single layer and add a color overlay.

LAYER>LAYER STYLE>COLOR OVERLAY.

This can be whatever color you desire and will ensure that all circles are the same. You can also play around with the opacity until you get the desired look of your army circles.

Image

Once you are happy wih your army circles and there in a single layer simply delete the flattened map image with the army circles on it.

There now you have perfectly centered army circles without the fuss of going through an XML file to tweek coordinates by 1-2px.



Thank,
gimil.
