I'm not too experienced with PhotoShop, but I think that the tool is a selective delete that he used on water bodies, so removing most of the water while maintaining relative shapes and sizes? Mostly just from the fact that India looks desiccated. 05:06, 11 January 2017 (UTC)Girish Australia is pretty mutilated, so I think the tool was used on land too 05:55, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Where are Laos and Cambodia missing? 06:14, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

The tool removes spaces of uniform color automagically. If you have big countries like India or Australia, they get caught by the algorithm as well. 06:16, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Can anybody figure out the projection before the application of the tool? 06:58, 11 January 2017 (UTC) I think it is a Mercator projection that got mutilated. 07:50, 11 January 2017 (UTC) I agree, it looks like a Mercator that Freddy Kruger got at. Girish, 09:02, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
