    I have cleaning experience but that's mostly for comics I've scanned myself, not RAWs. Wish I could join and learn though...

    Edit -*Downloads that cleaning test anyway*

    Ive actually just had a go at one of the test pages, its suprisngly hard!

    I have no idea how you do it as fast as you do, for a whole chapter would probably take me about a week.

    Although i found it helps to just yank that contrast right down :p Thats actually one of the things we specifically dont do :p It makes the lines too pixelated/sharp.

    I now harbour a new found repect for Shannaro! :tem

    *but not inane, a bunch of self loving, pedantic, egocentric arseholes*

    Edit, and guess who DIDNT see Jiraiya's custom user title :D

    Question - how do you fix the halftones (for example Sasori's face at the top of test page 1)?

    Didn't you guys need proofreaders for another scanlation project of yours?

    I was going to ask to start learning the ways off proofreaders and learn the ways of it, since I can't clean or scann becasue I don't have PS.

    We will soon :amuse -Terra

    Ok, it's just too time-consuming for me and besides I don't know what to do on some cleaning issues anyway, like the grays. I certainly admire you guys for doing what you do, though.

    Just curious, are we supposed to do re-outlining like on Sasori's face on page 1, panel 3?

    I downloaded the chapter that the tests are from just for reference and I'm just wondering about stuff like that.

    ^ But at the same time, don't use it too much, or you'll end up with a hell of a bad anti-aliasing (in short, your normally smooth lines would look all jagged). Use it a bit to make white areas white and darken the lines, but don't try to use it to make all black areas black for example, you'll have to fill them in manually with a paintbrush or similar.

    Also:
    - don't bother with the blur or sharpen filters. They ain't good for this. They'll end up making your whole pic look like crap. You'll have to do things manually.
    - I tried using the "overlay" setting for the brush once. Result? Jagged lines again. So don't bother.
    - if there are grey pages here... redraw everything that's in the grey area on a seperate layer. That's right. Every. Single. Line. Which is why there aren't that many grey cleaners actually in Shannaro, not everybody can do it at first. A graphics tablet is a must for this. And... 6 hours or more for the hardest grey pages. bleh. Then create a layer of corresponding grey underneath, and there! A tip that Sariachan gave the rest of us: while retracing the lines, you can use another color for clarity. Red for example. Then change all the red to black later on.
    - when there's text in the background covering parts of the pic... remove the text, and... redraw the missing parts to the best you can imagine it to be...
    - remove and redraw the borders. We us a line of 2 px.
    - don't forget to grayscale everything at the end.

    ...

    HAH!!! Jiraiya! You gave them THAT as second page? That thing took me hell to do! :lmao Heh, on the bright side, does who manage the clean would directly become a grey cleaner. :D

    People who take the test, here's a hint: Use the polygonal lasso tool :/ not just a brush. As for me, I would be an awesome cleaner, but I have zero patience for this sort of thing :rofl
