Option a) Image -> Adjustments -> Desaturate. Option b) Image -> Mode -> Grayscale.

No offense to the poster above me, but the way you showed there is not only unnecessarily complicated, it's also just wrong.
Why on earth would you try copying the shape of the Japanese text for...

One question if I may; why do you bother editing a series that's been licensed and translated into English ages ago? You're even linking to the official volumes and all; what's the point?

Get the episode in HD, for the highest resolution possible. Then use either VLC player, or better yet Gom Player and use the built-in screen capture function. If you're using Win7, simply use the...

Hatsu already mentioned some things about cleaning and I don't have much time right now anyway, so I'll keep this short and about only two things.
The most important rule in...

Film grain applied to only certain areas, like only gray panels, or simply only grays, can work quite well. That's what maximum7 used to do for their HQ Bleach releases. Alternatively, adding uniform...

Who said scanlating was easy, anyway?
Yes, you got some shitty spread there, indeed. The raw pages were scanned and cut off in an annoying way, but it's definitely doable, though it might take...
November 05, 2012 04:43 AM
The reason why you don't like it is because it's way too blurry. Look at the gray circle between the 1st and the 2nd/3rd/4th panel, see its edges? Bad. See the edges of the round gray stuff in the...

If it's advice what you're asking for, advice ya shall receive. However, pardon me if I come to a conclusion you won't like to hear. But anyway, here goes:
Anything between 1100px...

Sorry guys, you are all correct, we had a little typo there, I double checked with the raw and updated the page on the reader:
Hit F5 to...

They are physically cut out, Asariii - the postcard is just... full of holes, and I'd like to know too. >.> I guess it's some sort of game though, on the flipside you got tiny squares with OP...

There you go:
February 05, 2011 06:01 PM
That almost sounds like an accusation to me. :headscratch
Not like we owed anyone, but we do post updates when something is on a break or unexpectedly delayed, etc. However in this case we're still...

Amazing amazing art, and definetely worth sitting at scanlating till 2:30am. You better enjoy as much as I did, or else *shakes fist*. :amuse
January 23, 2011 05:59 PM
Hmm I guess you guys just weren't around back then, but does nobody here remember the One Piece 10th Treasures? It was a special book and contained the Akira Toriyama and Eiichiro Oda Cross Epoch of...

Chapter 47's out :amuse
Edit: 48 and 49 are both up too now, so we're all caught up. 50 should be landing soon, we hope to release it the week...

The title says "Cleaning Manga for Zarosaki", not cleaning in general. Back in the day everyone knew what kind of group Zarosaki was, hence why I said, people who haven't been around for so long...
January 01, 2011 10:51 AM
Geez, would you people please just stfu if you haven't been with the scene for long enough?
Zarosaki was a Naruto coloring group, an epic one at that. This tutorial is for preparing images to be...

We released WSJ #5-6 on saturday, which was basically this wednesdays issue, we just got it earlier. And since it's a double issue, we won't get a chapter next wed (5th of january), so issue #7...

I bring you zeh new chapter:
I shed a man-tear while working on page 19.
December 23, 2010 01:57 PM
You can get chapters 1-45 here (thanks for that link again, molo):
And we have picked it up from volume 6 on over at mangastream, ...
December 08, 2010 10:56 AM
Nice thread. :amuse
You did miss out on the most hilarious moment of Vinland Saga though, but that's a good thing since it means I can contribute something to this thread aswell, haha.
December 08, 2010 10:01 AM
I'm still really enjoying this series, scanlating it is a lot of fun too, but honestly, it's too slow paced for my taste at the moment. This farm arc is just fine, well, it would be, if it was a...
December 06, 2010 04:18 AM
We aren't an aggregator, we don't host other groups work on mangastream, only stuff scanlated by ourselves. :amuse
Anyway, if Ippo can't knock him out "easily", I fear the manga might drag on for...
December 04, 2010 06:03 PM
Scan in a higher definition if you want to save all the dark grays. Preferably 3000px height or more - a 300px/inch resolution in other words, or 400 even. You also won't get around some manual work...
November 28, 2010 07:14 PM
I'd suggest contacting the Topaz team with any and all installation problems, this hardly falls under "scanlating help".
Seriously though, I'm sure there is a read me file somewhere that explains it...

You can use them for a month for free, then you'll have to register and buy them if you like the product.
General note: Don't even think about posting keygens or cracks here.
November 27, 2010 02:41 PM
I don't really see how we can help you, you got the images, so you should be able to judge best unless you show us some samples.
To answer your question though, quite many pages in the magazine...
November 22, 2010 08:01 PM
I gave this all my love:
Please love it with me :3
(The section mods may want to create a thread for the databook and sticky it, we'll...

You know, a little research and I found one-shots of Dragon Ball drawn by the mangaka that is going to do Dragon Ball SD.
2nd and 3rd from the bottom.
November 16, 2010 09:46 AM
I agree, from an aesthetics point of view, it looks *kinda* ugly, definetely not the ideal bubble, but it's often just necessary unless you are one of those who don't care how many hyphens they have...
November 15, 2010 12:28 PM
I second that, congrats and good luck, Carlos.

Are you serious? I barely made it through typesetting that crap. Felt like Kishimoto was forced to make it with a gun up his temple. Horrible cliché story, with no climax at all (which is even more...
September 25, 2010 01:11 PM
There's no such thing as correct work, especially not with this kind of raw, can't judge on your result at all.
September 25, 2010 10:57 AM
Sure, google for "Rena Chan" to get to her website, I think that was her raw, only resized.
Or get on firstname.lastname@example.org, the channel for raws is #irc-distro.
September 25, 2010 10:49 AM
You need a high-res raw if you want to do decent cleaning, for magazine raws that's at least 2200px, most common are 3000+px raws. Try again with those, since the result you got with this below...
