    [Cleaning] Re: [Cleaning] Redrawing Dotted Lines

    I don't really think there's a quick-and-easy solution, though I could be mistaken. For that sort of thing, a lot of it comes down to finding a nice source for a particular bunch of lines. It's...

    [Typesetting] Re: Typesetterer v1 Released

    Yeah, you always will unless you're at the last page in the script when you close the application. Unless your error is something else?

    [Typesetting] Re: Typesetterer v1 Released

    Here's a vid of someone using the first version, Typesetter v0. The newer version is a good deal different, but it behaves similarly. Should at least give you an idea of the hotkeys and such.

    [Typesetting] Typesetterer v1 Released

    It's been quite a while, but I've finally released another version of Typesetterer. You can get it here.

    If you're unfamiliar with the program, it manages your script and PSDs to make typesetting...
  5. [Typesetting] Re: Helper utility for typesetting with Photoshop on Windows.

    Ah, sorry, I haven't really kept up with the changes to scanlationshop. Hotkeys and the typesetting-centric approach were pretty much the only reasons I felt it was worth "releasing". So, if you do...

    Not entirely sure if this is the right place to post this, so feel free to move it if necessary. Anyway, I've put together an application that behaves similar to the typesetting functionality found...

    [Misc Attempt] Re: colour problem...?

    Well, your leveling is off, the majority of the whites are only #fbfbfb(blacks are also underleveled a bit as well), so your "mac" isn't wrong. If you're talking about two separate computers with...

    [Cleaning] Re: I need hepl! Really LQ scans

    Leveling doesn't get rid of bleed through. There aren't really many options open for you, you could try to clone over it but obviously that's not going to happen. About all you can do is what you...

    [Discussion] Re: New Cleaning Style Frenzy

    Don't read them then. With the exception of HSDK, all of your other links have many, many groups scanlating them. If you can't stand the awful denoising, wait for a "quality" group to release.

    [Misc Attempt] Re: My first try at cleaning

    The wand is nice for selecting the white areas in text bubbles as well as the margin. Generally I'll use that, switch to rectangular, select the text, contract by 1px or so, and alt+backspace. It...

    [Misc Attempt] Re: My first try at cleaning

    The burn tool has its place in manga editing, although it's mostly limited to redraws. It's extremely helpful for blending colors to match gradients.
  13. [Misc Attempt] Re: looking for an easy solution(if there is one)

    As far as I know there's not really a solution for that. Cloning over the bleeds is about all you can do. If all the pages are pretty bad you should just get the scanner to redo it.

    [Seinen] Re: Sidonia no Kishi by Tsutomu Nihei

    The fact that it seems like a decent amount of the story is going to be spent in a school is fairly depressing. It looks like it'll follow the generic shonen mecha formula. Although his style...

    Re: So... how did I do? ^_^

    Emery's right about the cloning, just use the region to the left of the text as the source for most of it. Try to avoid taking too much if any from the right side, as it's influenced by the gutter...

    As far as the second one is considered, the trick to getting it to look somewhat similar is using a pattern. This is just thrown together to give you an idea, so forgive me if it isn't quite...

    Are your images in grayscale or RGB? I'd guess they're in RGB atm and changing them to grayscale does it regardless. Just convert to grayscale, ease up on the leveling a bit and it should work out...

    Well, redrawing on color pages isn't really too much different than regular redraws, it's just you're redrawing on a much larger spectrum. For redrawing text, you have a good deal more leway in that...
