    Sweaty first attempt, please tell me what im doing wrong

    hi, this is my first time trying to clean some pages (also first time using photoshop). So please tell me what im doing wrong so i know it for future attempts. Any help is appreciated .
    p.s. ah almost forgot :all translated text was translated by someone else, sorry for using it but i dont understand japanese.
    i only used the translations for experimenting( if u prefer: study purposes)

    Re: first attempt, please tell me what im doing wrong

    For 1.) Well you did a pretty good job, and I get that you didn't want to redraw (is hard, I know but instead of pasting the english text over the jap, next time do it next to the jap text, instead of over it. I'm too lazy to find an example for it but I'm pretty sure you know what I mean.

    For 2.) Apart from what I mentioned in ^, you should try to join the pages better (so no line in the middle and it doesn't look like two joined pages (mangastream does a really good job of this, check it out in the Naruto scans

    For 4.) Well I'm not really an expert, but maybe you should've leveled the black a bit more, not because of the bits thats needed inking but the grays look a little bit funny (kinda light).

    For 5.) Did you denoise it? I'm not a fan of denoising because of all the things that go wrong when you can't use it properly, like in this. The black looks a lot more faded in your version than in the original and again I think it needs more leveling (this time a bit more black and white)

    And I'm too lazy to do anymore, but you are so much better at this then I was when I first started And I also can't be bothered giving you specifics (chainging the manga pages lol), but if you want to clean scanlations go for it And join a group, people are always looking for new slaves members and they can help you get better :3 pm me if you want to join mine :P
