i think the cleaned version is too blurred, you should also improve the borders and the greys, try to look for some tutorial on the net.
the raw is bad but you screwed up with the denoise, the page is blurred, the black are not good, neither the qhites, you left some specks.
completely overfiltered and you used an inappropriate font
tha raw is quite LQ.
anyway, you overleveled, try to resize to 3000 px height before levelling and don't try to get rid of all the dark with levels, use the burn tool, redraw the line on the dresses...
it would be easier if the image would work :sasa:
the raw is a little bad for a tank, anyway, try to resize to 2000 px Height before levelling, put it to grey scale, don't use filters and do less levelling, grey doesn't have to become black
I just use the photoshop reduce noise filter, but in my opinion the less filter you're able to use, the better it is
I like the film grain, you could try to do that like this: http://senbonzakura.kageyoshi.net/2008/01/21/advanced-grays-film-grain/
it also depend on which manga you're cleaning
Hi Finestela, could you upload the new chapters of Drifters (Chapter 12) and Godeath (chapter 3) ?
please! a lot of people in the community would be really gratefull! =D
I speak italian, english and... latin(?!)
no, it doesn't, HQ in a few words is the manga just like you would see it in a tankobon
does it looks like that to you? this definitely is LQ in my opinion.
anyway that's just my opinion and you're...
but the result is still an LQ scan
maybe this could be a cool effect for some graphic work, but as cleaning metod... this sucks, sorry XD
you've lost ALL the details, the line are squiggy and the blacks are not even completely black....
it's called redrawing, take a look here: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17521
improving the LQ-MQ raw quality is called cleaning, you have to look around for some tutorial, anyway...
you saved me!
mille grazie XD
edit: sorry but it seems that there are not the acented vocals
maybe i did something wrong?
you could try to write clearly on your home page "we are not doing X series for X reason and we don't have any intention to start doing it again, please understand our reasons" or something similar...
i don't really know your sitation neither what series you're talikng about but i know that if you're doing a work for free is up to you to decide if stop it or continue, so they can't blame you if...
yes, I know XD
they lokks this way:
i don't really like the grays but the good thing about that group is that they are really fast
oh, now i see XD that tut can be really usefull sometimes but this is not the case
anyway taking off the screening effects makes the mangas looks less real, some scanlation groups use filters like...
on your new attempts: you can see there is a little blurrines where you erased.
this is maybe beacause of some wrong setting with the tool or because you clicked many times, dragging is better for...
T_T unfortunately i looked around but i wasn't able to find another raw, this seems to be the only version available on the net...
lately i've been cleaning aflame inferno from tank raws.
the raws in volume 3 are perfect but i'm havingsome troubles since i'm now cleaning vol. 5
the greys in these raws have a strenge squared...
wow, I think it's perfect! =D........ but you know, i'm not really an expert in HQ cleaning so i don't think i can be of any help XD
anyway, whic metod did you use to do that? is there a tutorial...
just uploading it on mangahelpers site is enough, anyway if you want to put a mirror you cand just do as you did
for the cleaning: i'm not sure about a thing, could you show me a raw page?
I use anime ace 2 and i think that a lot of aother groups use that too.
anyway, some people don't like it, i heard they use wild words.
try to take a look here:...
the second is better in my opinio
don't worry about the blurrines, as lons as you follow the tutorial on senbonzakura it will llok good
but since is a tank raw you can level the black a bit more...
download winrar or winzip and install it.
then put all the images in a directory, right clic on it and choose, create an archive and finally upload the archive

Scanlations Use Conditions: Italian scanlation groups can't mirror our scans anywhere and can't use our translations; International scanlators can use our cleanings...
i'm not relly sure it will be enough whit this but is what I usually do when there are specks in dark greys
weel, that's a quite bad image indeed -.-
anyway I can try to figure something out
ok, first, those are greys, so you mustn't turn it to black, it woul be an error
you have two choises:
if you could do 3000px high raw you'd make a lot of cleaners happier XD
yes, the blacks are good but if you invert the image you can see there are some specks on those...
but thisi is not the main problem!
the real problem is that you over filtered the iega, destroying...
I completely agree with Alan Smithee.
there's no need to use a denoise on good raws.
You can also try this method for a better levelling:...
ah, ok XD
è che per essere scannerizzate dal volume sono abbastanza scarse
i'm not sure what you mean but try this XD http://senbonzakura.kageyoshi.net/2008/03/01/advanced-grays-gradient-overlay/
i'm not sure these are tankobon raws, anyway I agree with sensei, without denoise is better XD
nooooo! please don't use the denoise!
the page i quite good but I think that the darker grey parts are a little blured from the raw itself, if you aim to HQ you should redraw the greys
you have to erase the fonts, than use the line tool or the pen tool to redraw it and then write then new text, the most used font is anime ace, but you can use what you want, just remember to stroke...
don't say that, cleaning is not difficult, it just take a bit long to clean at the beginning.
try some tutorials :)
but her hairs were gray and turned out white, it's an error, besides this is not a double page and shoul be disjoint.
the raw is not HQ, I think is nearly LQ.
inverting the colours is good for...
musashi, you overleveled the withes, in fact her hairs are half cancelled
besides you left dirt aroun her shoes
you also made grays in the left page become white, try to avoid that
besides, it's just my opinion but it would be better if you disjoin the pages
too much denoiser, result: destroyed greys and blured blacks.
you could try using the precleaning methods described in this site: http://senbonzakura.kageyoshi.net/
not bad! try to level more the whites like bobrianto said and use the burn tool to burn the blacks (look at this tutorial:...
I just knew you for the raws, i didn't know you are a translator too XD
keep up the good work
merry muffin-christmas =D
you suold burn the dust in blacks and lighten the grays a little bit
