Yo! What's up guys.
I found Linh lurking in some other forum saying that he needed a typesetter for GTO Shonan. I know all the basic photoshop tricks. Never done any typesetting though, but how hard can it be. Be looking forward to your support. Lets get this show (or manga ) on the road.

FONTS:
Wild words for normal speach
Wild words BOLD for yelling

You can find them on google.

Try this Plz

Try typesetting this please

Don't worry about mistakes this is just to see what you can do and to give you a taste of what it's like.

Up panel:
Big Texts: what skill! Terrific!! Onizuka sensei!! He got about 100 in 30 secomds~~~~// heh heh that's what expected from the son of a goldfish shop// maybe a little too many, I'll bet
glasses guy: whattttttt~~~~~!!
Text up Sakurako: kyaaaa~ (Redraw)
Small text: *splatter* X6

Mid panel:
glasses guy: 100 in 30 seconds means 1 second 3 fish?!// this has to be a fucking setup!!
Oni: anyways, a deal is a deal right// nah?
sakurako: haiiii~~
text on fish bag: *splatter*
text left sakurako: damn...right, lets do the next! Shooting practice!!

Down Panel:
Text right to left: King of game WhiteSwan me// can't be losing this one!! // me al' gud at shooting, ya know...//shut up, shut up!!
seiya: ...haha

Good Luck Very Happy And I'm looking forward to working with you

Wow, it takes a lot longer than I though. I initially planned it to be done in 15mins tops, lolz, takes about as long as to make a sig. I guess I'll improve with time. Here's a pic of my results. I made some changes to the wording, if you don't like it, tell me, I'll change it back. had me a tad confused intially about the placement of the words, but I think I get it now, should take me a lot shorter next time round.

Very good for your first time. and I gave you a really hard page lol
The only thing I have a problem with is the Kyaaa-
Although I didn't really tell you what to do with it
Here's the page that I had done.
My page

FEEDBACK

If you notice the text above the center top girl, It needs to be erased and then written over, A.K.A. a redraw. To do this you use a mixture of the clone tool, and the patch tool. as well as some other small Things to make it look better.
The words the needed redrawing were "Kyaaa-"
and where you put Kyaa should be "Whatttt-----!!"

Just wondering?
Did you adjust the levels of the image? because it looks extremely dark to me. Please don't mess with the levels unless you are cleaning the chapter. This one was already cleaned

AND YES YOU CAN
You can make changes to the script as long as it fits the situation and you think it'll make more sense to english readers.

Hell even I do
the Translation King of games WhiteSwan Me!! (and I was actually given this in the script) I made major changes (it makes no sense) to I am the King of the WhiteSwan game.

So overall you did very well for your first time.
I gave you a hard page (hardest one I've seen so far) because I figured the Kyaaa would throw you off.(It took me 5-10minutes of trial and error to figure out the top part)
GTO is a very demanding manga for typesetting but I'm sure you'll do fine.

I'm looking forward to working with you.
I'm going to let Tran Linh have the final say tho as he's the leader.

Lolz, Thanks.

I didn't change the darkness or anything. It just came out that way after I saved it as JPG, at 12 quality. Lolz, I didn't get what you meant by the Kyaaa part, and i couldn't see the glasses dude, so I assumed the big shout bubble was for it. I was going to do that * thing for splatters as you did, but decided not to. I guess I should have, would have made things a lot quicker too.

Look forward to working with you mate. Lets hope we can get started soon.

actually, that was good for a first time. the only things you'll need to keep in mind is text size, positioning, and spacing. all of which you'll work on as you keep typesetting. lastly, about our translator. he isn't fluent in english so if you want to change something go ahead and then mention your changes.

for those 3 smallest bubbles, instead of splatter. i would use splat to fit the bubble. i know splat is singular and splatter is pural. not sure if it works the same in japanese.

"King of games WhiteSwan Me!"
I'm the King of Games, WhiteSwan! I can't be losing this one!

well, first, i'm no leader, we all are helping each other. Seriously, i'm just doing my job as a typical translator and sometimes a recruiter.
second, my personal opinion is not that professional as Zetto or DemonSpawn or CM, I'm just a simple translator so if i'm wrong , please forgive me Very Happy. I'll say that it's pretty good for a first timer, ChaosMaster, really. I especially like the part about the six bubbles "splatter" in the up panel. And the way you lined up the "kyaaa~" thing does fit that tall bubble (even though the text is wrong...well, can't help it since some demon set you up! <---this is not a word play on anyone!! Razz ). "Me" in bold is noticeable and that's what made it great!. Finally, the font for different characters are in different types...You have good sense of typesetting...I think it's not just me but everyone else will be very happy if you work with us cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers
For the time being, the chapter 26 GTO: shonan 14 days is being cleaned, I'm afraid that you can't begin the work immediately (yep, it sucks having to wait for those cleaning pages) so why don't you try typesetting a full chapter of Higanjima (chapter 50 or 51 or some other chapters?) I think the translation and cleaned pages for them are ready to be of use! Or you want, you can wait to work with GTO: 14 days (but I think you should take the first choice since you will gain some more experiences working with a real chapter).
Again, welcome friend Smile

I don't mind starting on Higanjima (I haven't read the story though.) Maybe give me a few pages to start off with. I'll work on it in my free time.

Lolz, of course I've read GTO, and I"m a big fan of it, that's why I'm here. It's just Higanjima that I haven't read. Any links? I'm not really the type to read online.

Hmmm, horror ey. Not really my kinda thing to be honest. Bores me. I'm into comedy or martial arts.

That won't cut it <.<
Higanjima is the origin of this group, to deny it, is to deny us as a group.
tongue

.... or atleast read a summary
