Map making in the family - maps in Illustrator and Photoshop

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that one of my aunts is making maps for an Atlas. Map making is officially in the family now. Cartography is a visual thing and she does all the prettyfication and compostion in Photoshop, Illustrator and Corel Draw. She showed some interest in worldwind and I tried to introduce her to Qgis, now we need to add Inkscape like annotation and composition support into it. Here is one of her sample maps - it is my home state. Only state in India with the Himalayas to the north and the Ocean to the south.
