    How to Clean Manga...

    Well rykarreolacr spanked me asked me to make a cleaning tut on how i clean dragon fall manga.
    So here goes.
    I pick page 6 from chapter 3 of Dragon Fall
    [img=http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/9875/dragonfall0300068zv.th.jpg]
    This will take you less than 2-3 minutes
    The raw quality is extraordinary so it's not gonna be to hard.
    Before everything i desaturate the page *CTRL+SHIFT+U*
    We start of by leveling the page until the qrays become white.*actualy the grays are suposed to be white but the scan quality gets faded...**To open the level tool pres CTRL+L*
    From the original settings
    [img=http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/5316/dragonfall0300066ad.th.jpg]
    To this settings...
    [img=http://img206.imageshack.us/img206/4749/dragonfall0300061wx.th.jpg]
    So now the white parts are white right?
    Now there are many options to get the black parts to look good but i prefer doing the folowing thing.
    Duplicate the layer *Ctrl+J* like this
    *Oh yeah forgot to say that i didn't sesaturate my pic when i started the tut =)) , so please desaturate before you start, i desaturated it after , same result but the pics that are above this one are a bit green if you can see *
    Duplicate the layer and set it on multiply or on color burn.Usualy color burn , but for this pic i used multiply.
    Color burn kinda pixelates the image sometimes.
    Final image + duplicated layer step.
    [img=http://img206.imageshack.us/img206/5637/untitled12nu.th.jpg]
    Hope you got the esentials , it's a really shity tehnique but works in usual cases.
    I only use it on verry hq raws that don't have grays like naruto dose.
    *I mean when the character skin is gray in the hq version of the cam pic*

    This is great, what happens when you aren't allowed to desaturate the image? (for some reason it's not offered, as in it's un-selectable)

    Maybe you're working with the image in greyscale already?
    Currently translating Raruto, a Spanish parody of Naruto (getting ready for the last two chapters, to be released in English in October and November). Check it out here!

    Also working on another project that you might get to see in January...

    Ah, I see. One additional thing, if a picture is scanned as two pages... how should one go about separating the images? (to make two pictures 1) sorry for asking stupid questions but I think it would sort of add to the tutorial?

    I always do this gently, then take a whute brush and do the rest. Only layers cant do!
