This is my first attempt at Editing, so any pointers would be appreciated.

Its the whole chapter 217 of vagabond:

The raw i used is from the thread:
Vagabond 217 RAWs/Translation/Edited Manga Thread [br]Posted on: October 31, 2006, 05:51:46 AM_________________________________________________also what quality level would this be? thanks[br]Posted on: October 31, 2006, 05:52:19 AM_________________________________________________oh i guess i better explain how i did it.

- redrew the boxes
- whited out of the boxes and centers of speech bubbles
- added text and page numbering (used slightly lighter black/grey for thoughts, darker for speech, is that the norm? or frowned on?)
- created a burn layer, and used the burn tool (at different sizes) to i guess level the darker areas and give it more punch in the vivid bits. (hoping this gives back the contrast... and actually keeps the detail).

didnt need to do any leveling at the start the raws were decent, any further an it woulda lost greys to gain the hard blacks.

i got rid of white dots on the black were i thought i should... but sometimes those white dots are the detail (especially on musashi's robe)... mmm not sure if its better to lose them or not.

is there anything i didnt do that i should?
