PostSubject: Applying as Cleaner (TOTAL BEGINNER)   Tue Jan 04, 2011 1:44 am

Since typesetters positions are closed (TL had to lock it right when I JUST finished applying)
Soo...my SECOND BEST CHOICE LOL
Though I need A LOT of help and PRACTICE first before I actually even take a test
Im using CS4 extended and I do not know what to do
I have everything I need I think... (feels like Im missing a few tools in photoshop though)

Feel free to post any tips or comments in this thread Very Happy (related to cleaning mangas though)
Also is this method of cleaning okay?

Hello, I'll be your examiner

Please visit this forum for the text http://xscansx.forummotion.com/t248-the-xscansx-cleaner-test



For cleaning you need a copy of Photoshop CS3 or better

you need easy.Fliter a photoshop pluggin,
you need a copy of topaz denoise, another photoshop pluggin(torrent it)
basic knowledge of photoshop (saving files and EASY crap like that) Other than that we can teach you.
So
Now that that's out of the way.

Tools used:
Format it'll be in
TOOL (SHORTCUT:MODIFIER + KEY) USES
Move Tool (v) Used for moving text, images or other object in Photoshop
Brush Tool (b) Used for editting the background image usually redrawing SFX.
Eraser Tool (e) Used to erase Japanese Text.
Text Tool (t NOTE: you cannot use shortcuts while the text tool is active) Used for Typesetting
Patch Tool/Healing Brush Tool (j) used for redrawing, it takes the "Texture" of whatever you select and moves it around. make a selection and then right click with the patch tool and it gives you a menu you can use patch as source or destination. NOTE: this tool is also a Healing brush tool It will be either an Icon of a bandaid or a patch If you don't know what it is simply Click and hold on it. It will bring up a small menu. and then click the tool you want.
Clone Stamp Tool/Pattern Stamp Tool (s) used for redrawing, it "Clones" what you select. HOW TO USE: (Alt + LEFT mouse button) to choose what you want to clone. click and move the mouse to draw the stuff in.
SEE Patch tool about the menu. as this is also a Pattern Stamp Tool

OTHER USEFUL SHORTCUTS
Spacebar = turns you cursor into a hand to easily navigate the screen.
x = change from primary to secondary color
CTRL + x = delete
CTRL + S = save
CTRL + SHIFT + S = save as * Very useful
CTRL + Z = Undo ONCE ONLY
CTRL + ALT + Z = Undo multiple times
CTRL + C and CTRL + V are copy and paste
ALT CLICKING with the BRUSH TOOL will give you the eyedropper tool.

Thats all I can remember off the top of my head.



Quoted from this forum http://xscansx.forummotion.com/t51-looking-to-learn


You can also find lots of useful information there.

I do not care how you do it as long as it looks good, I use a very destructive method of not using masks but drawing on a layer above, using the clone tool on the same layer. if that makes any sense.

Anyway

Good luck with the test Very Happy

@demonspawn did u ever check his links...Neutral they have been dead for quite a while now

lol yea Ive seen that thread before but like most of the links are dead
and nice copy and paste when Rakan first joined the team Very Happy

P.S. I'm not sure but I can't select topaz denoise anymore in the filter tab
probably had to do w/ copyright and adobe blocked it?

P.S.S. RAKAN use MEGAUPLOAD, they literally keep ur files forever and I mean FOREVER (had files that I uploaded 3 years ago and still there)

Damn it D:< that was the easy way ;__;

i'll try to upload a test.

MainFolder

There are some tutorial vids in there as well, feel free to take a look at them.

Try the test post the results, all you really need are:

Brush tool
Eraser tool
Clone tool

There are plenty of tutorials out there, find a style that you like and use it. You'll be working as a redrawer if I am correct? right? I hope so anyway, cause that's the style of test I put together, all you need to do is place the pages together (with a gap) and will the gap in so it looks like it was never there.

Good luck Very Happy

there are white spots on the sleeves
cuff should join together
knife has some minor issues



Should be a little farther apart.

face needs to be shaded and redrawn
Tie and white around tie needs to be drawn in
The leg suffers from the lack of page width
The bottom lines need to be connected at the bottom


Hope this helps

Err, I thought Koro was working on GTO. And Rakan was on it before that. Koro has the rest of this volume done anyway. But no matter, we need cleaners left right and centre. Tran is always picking up new projects, such as abc. We gonna be busy, hate to think what's gonna happen when the school year finally begins.

lolz, we have some kind of skillful members :#, we mostly have editors who can do both typesetting and cleaning (as well as redrawing), not just simple typesetter of cleaner like other groups. man...that explains for our sudden growth in so short a time (2 months and around 50 chapters). You guys are amazing :X

Let's dock some more new series btw Smile
*sign* I NEED MORE CLEANERS TO DO MORE PROJECTS ARGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
and guys, don't disclose our secret projects so openly Sad , we are shy to let the outside world know Razz

@Demon: If i'm not wrong, then Koro is now both cleaning and redrawong and proofreading? damn...what a guy! Hey, can you help in cleaning Kamen-teacher? I think the quality of my scan is not bad Razz
Hmmm? now I think about it, didn't I just bust out a project? lolz?
