I'm new cleaner, I've been working on POCKET MONSTERS ADVENTURES SPECIAL manga from the raw volumes.
they're a nice and clean raws but they're 1200x833 from the source, and there's a much of white space and I've been wondering how to crop the sides and the bottom side (with the upper one of course) to be the same size, everytime I try to crop it I came out with an odd page with a different dimensions!
is there a filter or action to crop the page all the same? like 60px from sides and 40px from the upper and the bottom?
Sample of page:
sorry for my poor english and the grammar
I'd suggest not cropping the white space. It's kind of an aspect of the manga's art, although a minor one.
so, there's no need to crop? even from the up?
Not really. The margins are there for a reason, after all. That's how the mangaka finalized it. I only ever cropped a straight line along the edges after rotating the page to make sure it's straight.
The white area does seem a bit big, but I agree with others - you shouldn't crop it off.
I've actually had to de-crop certain raws before - some people do think that the white spaces are unnecessary, but for a raw provider to be one of them... I could barely believe it.
