Designing for a travel agency or global company? Having a world map saved ready for use is always a good idea.
Creating a world map from scratch is actually quite time-consuming, well, just look at it, so many details, and they are super easy to miss.
I used to do freelance design for a few international exhibitions, and obviously, a world map had to show up at some point. I messed up a couple of times when I tried to make a map from a photo, it took me hours! that’s why I’m going for the easier way, just download a vector and add my style to it.
Good news! If you’re struggling with designing a map, I do have a free world map vector to share with you.
The file includes both png and PSD formats.
Note: The vector is free for commercial use, but a link credit would be really appreciated 🙂
Change Map Color (3 Quick Steps)
If green is not your color, you can change the color in Photoshop following the steps below.
Note: Screenshots are taken from Adobe Photoshop CC 2021 Mac version. Windows or other versions might look slightly different.
Step 1: Open the .psd file you just downloaded. It appears in the Layers panel as Shape 1.
Step 2: Select Shape 1 (the map).
Step 3: go to the Swatches panel and choose any color you like. If the Swatches panel is not shown on the right side of your document, go to the top menu Window > Swatches.
