[nbos] [FM8] Raster Mapping Tutorial Updated
"Mark Oliva"
Sat Feb 11th, 2012
Our tutorial for mapping with Fractal Mapper (TM) 8 is about two years old
now, and some parts of the original edition have become totally outdated and
obsolete. In addition, we also have had reports from some users of small
screen laptops that they're having problems with the graphics resolution of
the original PDFs.

We've released a new version 1.01 of the free tutorial, "Raster Mapping with
Fractal Mapper 8" that solves these problems. The people who reported
problems with the graphics have tested the new version and have told us that
it works fine on their machines.

For those who are unaware of it, the tutorial is a 220-page bookmarked and
color-illustrated PDF that takes you through all of the important aspects of
raster mapping with FM8, including how to make your own raster symbols, how
to make symbols from digital photos and how to add transparency to raster
symbols. The download also includes a large number of supporting materials.

However, before you download, heads up on a few points:

1. The supporting files have not changed. If you already have downloaded
them, you needn't bother downloading them again.

2. If you already have worked your way through Version 1.0, there's not
much point in dowloading the new version.
