FSEarthTiles = How should i do this properly?

#1
So basically, i have a project of this island located not far from Coepnahegn and Malmö. I have sharpened the Ground texture a bit, and i could also do a bit of colorgrading. But i really wanna know what type of masking or blending colours i need to use for this one. ( As shown on second picture ) So should i add a "Transition" a 3rd way out of the coast line, and then add another colour but i dont know witch.. I've seen youtube videos and they sat the "Transition" out in the edges of the entire picture and covered it with the yellow from coast and out. and i saw the result, but it wasnt a transition like a transition should be... What i mean by that is that i want lighter blue color closer to land and darken color when further out, and i kanda wanna have a preview of it and how it should be done ( If anyboy could add that below this Post. ) And also for land textures, and how they should be done. And by that i mean how i do a smooth transition around the ground texture on actual land. (So any suggestions on how to smooth transition an island with coast blue water that blends with the dark colored sea water further out the ocean, and also how to blend normal ground texture on land with autogen scenenery. )

Here is an example to start with;
You should edit your AreaMask_Lp1_.... file to achive something similar. Go to CHANNELS tab of the image, and work on the "Red" color.
Blending is tricky, but you shall try and see what fits best to your eye.

Ofcourse the color of the water you see depends on the WaterClass you have applied around the island. It is a seperate process.

On an island scenery you don't have to worry much about scenery colors matching autogen ground, but if you like to study that there were some detailed posts about this color matching process.
