Thanks in advance

Thanks for that swampy, could you send me the node setup you have, minus the images obviously, a little hard to see in the picture when i zoom in.

No need, It's just an image node (luma) -> make vector node (y) -> displacement. Forget about the invert node, I was just playing around and forgot to remove it.
One thing to note is that you need to set your heightmap image to linear, or it gets gamma corrected and the displacement is wrong.

Cheers!
