Hm, that is strange. I can copy everything from a website or a textfile and it will paste in Photoshop or any other program without problems.
But I'm barely using Windows, so I can't troubleshoot this problem.
I usually just
- copy the desired text
- get into text mode, click on where you want to paste
- while the cursor is still blinking, just press CTRL + V
Thank you very much eni and bax
You just saved me from carpal tunnel syndrome.
The reason why I never had success before was because I didn't select the text tool first then, ctrl c > ctrl v...
My manga scan is red and white (original). how do i converted it in to black and white ?

Thanks a lot
I've been using Photoshop 7 and have recently encountered a problem.
Whenever I try to add text to a png, the picture suddenly gets a red tint.
It's really irritating, because as soon a I switch to another tool, I can't edit the picture/text anymore.
Does anyone know what's going on here. I know I'm editing on the right layer, because the layers box only show one layer. If anyone could help I'd be grateful.
Change your image to Grayscale (it's on Indexed Color now).
Is there a good way to enlarge raws that are too small? I tried the sharpen filters but they just don't look any good.
In photoshop? Not unless you want to make the raws look like crap. The only way to get bigger raws is to buy the tank/mag and scan it yourself.
I've been using jpgs to save my scanlations for a while now (editor/typesetter here, lawlzerbots), and I'm really really unsatisfied with the artifaction it leaves on the finished scans, especially after taking 2+ hours of cleaning work on a page just to have it show up just as dirty as when I first started working on it. I've started looking into pngs, but I'm absolutely clueless when it comes to how to save them to get the smallest possible file size.
For the record, I use photoshop for my editing work, and even when I use an indexed color palette the end size of the file is about a third more than I'd like it to be. For me, a normally saved png runs about 400kb, while I'd like my optimal window to be somewhere between 200-300kb. (And even then, a 30-page chapter is going to be about 9 megs big.)
While I'm on that note, what's about an acceptable size for chapters? I've been thinking between 5-10 megs a chapter. (Let's say we're working with a 30-page monthly at 1200px in height.)
Anyway, if anybody could drop some hints as to how to really drop my png size, I'd much appreciate it. I'm totally at my wits' end and COMPLETELY sick of jpegs right now.
Use Save for web, choose png-8 and select the amount of colour you want... 17-21ish.. if you want to save it in more colours, 64 should be the max. After that, you can further decrease the size using pngcrush, pngoptimize or other similar png file reducers. PMed you a link for an easy program along with everything explained in detail.
