Here's my quick clean of this page. With rather lazy redraws ^^
The version presented by Obsidian has a...

If I'm not mistaken, CS3 introduced sample preview for cloning which is a great help when redrawing. CS5 introduced content-aware fill, which gets rid of smaller redraws in no time (and if you're not...

There seems to be some raws available online, but I've no idea about their quality, etc. since they're up on sh**ty filehosts that make it very difficult to download anything without a premium pass....

You won't really see much (if any) improvement in quality when scanning at 600dpi instead of 300dpi. And scanning at 600dpi takes nearly twice the time 300dpi does. So I don't agree.
But I don't...

It's a tough page, I admit. To get a decent result you should either select the pine needles and use layer mask for them or copy them to a different layer and use different settings when...
December 27, 2014 04:55 PM
I doubt that. There are actions that will automatically fill in the bubbles with white or whatever color you set them with (it can also be the foreground/background color), but they require that you...
December 27, 2014 12:21 PM
There's no such thing as one action that will clean anything you want it to. Certainly not if you're trying to get results better than LQ/MQ.
Sometimes a single action will even bring different...

You're welcome. :)
I'm not aware of any method to make Lazarus work on a smartphone. I'm pretty sure it predates any FF mobile apps, but I might be wrong.
You can always try asking here:...

That is weird indeed. The translation previews are still viewable on the translator pages.
I guess an admin must have been trying to improve something and ended up breaking the translation pages xP

There's also one major flaw with typesetting in Gimp - you cannot edit those text layers in Photoshop. Which means you'd be either forcing the QCer to get Gimp him/herself or point out all of the...

If you mean Lazarus, then here's how you can fix it:
1. Open the extension's page.
2. Right-click the "install now" button > save as..., and save it somewhere.
3. Right-click the saved extension...

How about a link we can actually open? :)

Option c) Image -> Adjustments -> Gradient Map (a black&white gradient).
Personally, I think that changing the mode to grayscale is the most "neutral" option - desaturate tends to lighten up the...

They are slightly overdenoised. Mainly the first one.
You should provide raws of these pages for comparison too.
February 22, 2014 08:29 AM
The settings will differ depending on the raw. Please upload one page for reference.

Topaz Denoise and Topaz Clean.
And although you can only get Topaz Denoise 5 from the official website, you should look around for version 3 as well.
There have been huge changes between versions...

Maybe: Lafayette Comic Pro, Komika Text, or Hand of Sean.
Though, it'd be easier to get the feel of the right one if we saw the surrounding picture :)

Usagi drop is neither shounen nor still running. And definitely not from the same magazine as Hamatora. Not even from the same publisher.

Doesn't really matter since she's covered it with text - http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showthread.php/2995648-How-do-I-do-these-stars?p=3707529&viewfull=1#post3707529

1. The leg should be slightly wider.
2. There should be more books filling the white space.
3. The jacket should partially cover said books - it shouldn't go under any of them (like it...

Ah, sorry. It was supposed to be unlisted. Try it now.

You mean something like this?
You add an empty layer, you outline the missing part with Pen Tool, you stroke it with...

The redraws look very good. There are some mistakes, but you can only see them with the raw next to the clean.
There is, however, still a lot of dirt and noise on the page. Watch this video and...

Due to the publishers' war on scanlations a few years back, MangaHelpers has closed its scanlation and raw sections. Try Batoto.
January 24, 2014 09:04 AM
Not for the current chapters, no. You'd need to find yourself a raw provider.
January 24, 2014 06:58 AM
You will find stuff like that on poor quality raws. There is a few ways you can try to deal with it.
The easiest (quickest) one would probably be:
1. Change the page from RGB to Grayscale.

I support Tower of God and nominate Dragon Recipe.

As to the terms - here's a quick position overview: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=42854&page=1#post614289. You'll get the terms by replacing "ers"/"ors" with "ing" ^_^;

January 11, 2014 03:12 PM
Wait, so you wanna remove all the grays (the dotted patterns)? Or just those darker parts (shadows) on the glove?
If it's the former, then you shouldn't use clone - the "source" would be too small....
January 10, 2014 06:25 PM
I'm not sure I understand. Are you saying that you want to color this page? And asking which way of doing it is better - brushing over the patterns or just colorizing them?
If so, then brushing...
January 08, 2014 07:56 PM
Akbar, Almagro, Another, Ashcan BB, augie, Comix, Gemelli, Stan's Hand. Something along these lines.
January 08, 2014 07:45 PM
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...
January 08, 2014 07:28 PM
Clone Stamp should be enough for this one, but if there was less to work with, you could always recreate the lines by yourself:
1. Open an empty layer.
2. Outline the speedlines with Pen Tool...

I like my HQ scans to be at least 3000px high, which, for tank raws, can only be achieved with 300dpi + 140-150% page size. Or with 600dpi (which takes way longer to scan).
And I agree with...
January 08, 2014 06:58 PM
I always use hyphens. And I always split words by syllables.
The only time I do not use a hyphen is when a bubble is so narrow that a single syllable plus the hyphen don't fit inside.
January 08, 2014 06:50 PM
Also, if you take a look at the second page you'll see that you also lost the pattern surrounding the girl on the first and the center panels.
In cases like these it's usually best to use Magnetic...

What type of scanner are you using? If it's a multifunctional device then you won't get good results in grayscale (I've only tested HP's multifunctional devices).
Actually, the results in color mode...
