I'd love to help y'all out as a typesetter. Sadly, I don't have Photoshop. Sad

Welcome to the site.
Think your computer can run Photoshop CS5?

lol, fine don't answer me.

Go to: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=photoshop
and download the trial of photoshop.
Install it AS A TRIAL VERSION.
Then use this crack/keygen:
Code:
http://www.mediafire.com/?gblbagnjglo2167


Open the keygen, ignore the annoying music.
Press "Patch Hosts File", it basically makes the adobe registration check url redirect to 127.0.01(localhost, meaning your own computer. So it basically blocks interaction with the site that says "No photoshop for you")
Click on the drop-down menu, and select "Adobe MASTER COLLECTION CS5"
Open photoshop's trial, and use the keygen's serial # to register.

If that keygen's serial # doesn't work, use one from this:
Code:
http://www.mediafire.com/?yfohu5fwldk3nrc

=========================================
Here's a quick "basics to typesetting" page you can read over:
http://senbonzakura.kageyoshi.net/2009/05/02/typesetting/

If you have any questions, or problems. Feel free to ask ^^

Yep

Download these fonts:

http://www.mediafire.com/?dfk5csf1cp8uzca

And here's the test:

General instructions:
Click and drag with the text tool to create a text box.
Copy and paste from the script into the text box you've created.

Try it out, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Cocoa , i am not from the team , neither i am a typesetter. But , just to help. I think your text isn't centered most of the time. You did a good job with the size of the font , though.

Also , first bubble in the first panel..did you use bold or something like that on Eek! and here..?
As a reader it seems a bit weird when i read it..

But , it's a fairly good job for a first try Wink.

I wouldn't want to be a critic but, Try to fix some text on the bubbles like make the shape of the text match the bubble and DON'T make the text near or touch the bubble.

That is all, other than that probably good for a first timer Very Happy

hola hola hola
Dreams here aka the simple chill one =)
Ii'll be your judge xD

So dawn here pointed out some things you can work on
altho you must be really really picky to say "most of the time" xD it's not really off center that much
it's not bad but yes it could use some work

altho i'm not picky with the font arrangement, I am worried about the font placement and font size
some of your text bars are touching the outside of the bubble
the font looks like it's part of the bubble and not speech
Example:
Page 1: panel 3, bubble 2
you can move the word "like" with "this" instead of having it with "bathroom"

Page 1: panel 4. bubble2
the word "My" could've been with "praise"
or you can resize the font for this bubble
Also on the next bubble:
you could've resized that whole bubble as it has more space, your font is too small in that one =p

that's the ones on page one but yeahh
other than that i would give you a pass if you redid this test or try the chibi devil one i have somewhere ><
but Rue/Tran/Koro i think have the final saying as i'm not around most of the time =p

As Dreams said, "Praise my god-given talent" barely fits in the bubble, and the next bubble needs a larger font.
Same page, the last panel, you have four periods and *creak* in the same bubble. I haven't seen the cleans or text, but it should be either the periods or *creak*.

Page 2, panel 1, the second and third bubbles should have the text a little lower.
panel 3, first bubble and bubble starting with "OMG", same as previous (slightly lower)

Page 3, panel 4, last bubble, I'd reduce the font size slightly
panel 5, both bubbles I'd increase the font size slightly, the text in the second bubble could be a bit thinner/taller (to fit the bubble)

By the way, I'm not a typesetter Razz
If Dreams or another typesetter says otherwise regarding my advice, listen to them Wink
P.S. I'm only in charge of passing proofreaders/QCers.

lol , Dreams !

I am not Picky Wink . But , i mostly agree with Koro here. You're not a typesetter but i think you have good eyes Smile.

Only , in the page 3 , panel 3, first bubble. I'll reduce slightly the text maybe put it in italic or manually bend the text and try to reduce the stroke (it touch the border and isn't really centered because of the font size used).

But for a first timer it's really good. Btw who is in charge of redrawing the SFX in your team..(i'd like to talk to him/her ^^) ?

Edit: After second thought i might be a bit Picky Razz

Hmm.
I'd say if you want to retry, we'll give you a different test.
In the mean time, try to get used to using the text tool.
Either play around redoing this test, or ask, and we'll give you more things to practice on.
