Well... it was a huge ( first ) chapter ofcourse, with colour pages, so it was to be expected i guess =P
Yeah, I didn't want to lower the quality so I didn't try and get the size down. The fact that it's 54 pages with a few color is the reason.
We're still scanlating Bo-bobo. Nothing happened. Every week we will release one chapter of Bo-bobo and one chapter of Tsugihagi. Our translator has sent me scripts up to chapter 018 of Bo-bobo and he should be done with chapter 002 of Tsugihagi soon.Originally Posted by NeoShweaty
If you're looking for our Bo-bobo scanlations you can find them at www.mangawarehouse.com
you could have probably saved the quality and lowered the size if you changed the number of colors that photoshop saves it as.
Good point, but it's not really worth it because it's only two color pages and at best it would lower it a couple megabytes. Future chapters will be much smaller file size though because they are only 21 pages, and once the chapter gets up on our site it will be a faster download speed.Originally Posted by NeoShweaty
who was talking about the color pages? i hadnt thought of those. I was talking about the black and white pages. You can lower the number of greys, blacks and whites it is saved in because there are duplicates and such that arent needed
hmm, I will look into that. Can you direct me to a tutorial for that?Originally Posted by NeoShweaty
not needed. Instead of regular saving just go to save for web, and change the save as type (i think that is what it is) to png-8. Then just set the colors to 16 and raise and lower as you see fit. You can also compare it to the original to see just how low you can go before the quality is affected. You could also just use png crush but i have never gotten it to work and the photoshop way doesnt take that much more time once you figure out a good number for all the pages
Kyuzo, the link is down...... any other links for chapter 1??
The link works fine, you need to copy and paste it into your browser though because the forums takes out [SBM].zip from the link.Originally Posted by promfret
oh... hahahahha, silly me... thanks!
so is it being done by sushi bar manga
We just released the first chapter of Tsugihagi Hyoryu Sakka.
You can grab it on our site: http://jumpscans.wordpress.com/
We'll be releasing the next two chapters sometime this week. I think the series is pretty good, it reminds me of One Piece and Hunter x Hunter meshed together.
yeah, this one really is great. Its pretty good and it has potantial, like the story too and you guys it will certainly be a good one. Ask the raw-readers of tsugihagi. I think you are right with the comparison with HXH, difference: this one seems cooler.
go read it you guys
Not bad. Here's some typesetting tips:
1) Whenever typing a word in Japanese like "hyoryuroku", use italics.
2) Feel free to split up "hyoryu" and "roku" into different lines, since they're not exactly one word, and text in bubbles always look better with the diamond shape.
3) Text on background. This is where I feel a little bit of work can make a world of difference. The proper way to do text on background, is to use Outer Glow and not Stroke. Outer Glow settings should be: 100% opacity, 50% spread, 5px size. This will make the text a lot more readable than a simple 2px stroke.
