    Re: Leveling! Help Needed!!!

    Hi leveling is not my strong suit but here is how I would level this image. First thing I did was change it from RGB to grayscale.



    And here is the levels I ended up using. http://www.imagehosting.us/index.php...&ident=1835254 For some reason imageshack is hating on me today so hopefully this host works.

    You will then have to clean up the remaining dust and stuff. ***

    Also there is a very good tutorial on leveling in the tutorials section. Leveling tutorial by Angry

    I hope this helps

    You're welcome.

    Goto image -> mode -> grayscale on top menu bar assuming you are using photoshop that is.

    Photoshop colour problem

    Wasn't sure where to post this...

    Anyway, I have this extremely annoying problem with CS2. Whenever I import an image or even just colour using the brush tool it's like theres lots small dots, and it really throws me off. Weird thing is when I go to save for web the dots aren't visible.

    Does anyone know if maybe I need to tweak the settings or something?

    Re: [help] border angle

    Use the line tool and make it as big as you did for your strait lines. Then take that and bring it over your border; making sure that your line is the closest to the inside of the border that you can get. Now either do a fill, or a make selection and fill (doesn't really matter, I usually do a regular fill though). Now when you go to remove the old borders, you will have the new one left.

    Although, it looks like the top and bottom borders are supposed to be strait, but they warped. It's easier to tell if you use an actual page though.

    Re: where can i find the Cloning icon?

    It will be right under the healing brush, and right next to the art history brush, and it looks like a hand stamper. Or you can click s to activate the shortcut that will immediately activate it.

    File size?

    Ok, me and a friend just started to translate a manga and doing the cleaning etc etc. yeah, the whole package.

    I can't by the love of god use the search function, I have no idea why, but the bot-safety thingies are using me as a punch-bag.


    Anyho, I just realized a problem... Each .png file has a file size of 1MB, I'd say thats way overboard. Then again, we don't want to loose quality.

    Any idea how to minimize the size yet keep the quality? (So far I've been saving them as PNG-24, because PNG-8 makes all the gray areas darker, almost black in some cases!).

    Any suggestions welcome!

    Have you tried adding the whole chapter to a .zip file?

    Re: File size?

    Followed the guide, tried pngcrush, sure the file size was changed dramatically, for the better.

    However pngcrush did not fix the "darker shade" issue from the PNG-8 format (the guide gave the same gray darkened tone). Too bad, since he insists on the pngcrush software to fix the "quote: 'including gamma information that Photoshop will likely write incorrectly, making the png too dark. After running pngcrush the png won't be too dark any more.'"

    :'(

    Re: File size?

    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 fine. Also, I recommend advpng, it's part of the advcomp package, you can get it here.

    Edit: And in regards to zipping it, a deflate algorithm is built into the format of png, so any gains in compression will generally be nominal. Also, RAR's will usually have a few k smaller(compared to zip) filesize, presumably due to a more efficient header.
