PostSubject: A Guide To Cleaning   Tue Feb 01, 2011 3:57 am

I. Intro

Okay... to start off first....
I just started learning at using photoshop, but learned a lot.
YOU NEED PHOTOSHOP OTHERWISE YOU CANNOT DO ANYTHING!!! tongue (or at least something similar like gimp)

Adobe Photoshop CS5 Portable
Code:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=KFMPS8RF
http://www.mediafire.com/?6w62cqznp24pt8k
http://www.fileserve.com/file/gyfxd9b
Torrent: http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/182534645/photoshop+cs5?tab=summary
Adobe Photoshop CS5 Full Install (with mirrors)
Code:
Meh... just go to this site and register, and download from this topic
http://www.warez-bb.org/viewtopic.php?t=5636491&start=0

Crack
Code:
Same as that site

As for Topaz Denoise, it cannot be used in grayscale so use it after finish with clean
Well... heres the download anyways...
Topaz Tools
Alternative
II. Tools

The tools used to clean the manga in picture form (very self-explanatory, I love it Very Happy ):
Spoiler:
 
Alternatively, you can hold ALT and click to change tools faster.
Also, these are the shortcuts:
Spoiler:
 
Hover over the image too see the shortcut keys...

III. Steps
Before cleaning, make sure to set it to GRAYSCALE, Image->Mode->Grayscale. SC = keyboard shortcut
(there is no certain order, however, all steps are PREFERRED, burning the page should be done before duplicating the page)
Also, this is just a 101 basic cleaning. There are multiple methods out there, but I just chose this way. More is explained below in the "Main Resource".

  1. First open up the picture with photoshop. (ofc)

  2. Resize, rotate the image to preferred size (SC: ALT + CTRL + I)(standard size is usually width:1000 height:1400 or 1000x1400 in pixels)

  3. Level the page (SC: CTRL + L) (Refer to main resource for more info)

  4. Erase all the text in bubbles (can be done by multiple tools like brush, eraser, marquee)

  5. Any other methods of redrawing are done (e.g. redrawing out of box sfx, adding borders, etc.)
    Redrawing is done multiple ways by using the Clone Stamp tool, Brush tool, Magic Wand or Lasso tool, Healing Brush tool, and Pen Tool.

  6. Burn the page, DO NOT BURN GRAYS (for speed burns, first use the wand or lasso tool, then Select->Modify->Contract->2)

  7. Filter page (if HQ raw, not required for filtering)(for the sake of this guide, I used the senbonzakura's method of cleaning and still works great w/o topaz denoise) Alternatively, Topaz Denoise the page.

First off, duplicate the kinda cleaned page (leveled, redrawn, etc.) or "Background" 3 times (layers by default at bottom left corner).
Second, select the first dup. page, change to "Multiply", change "Opacity" to 50%, then Filter->Stylize->Diffuse-->Ansiotropic--->OK.
Third, select the second dup. page, change to "Soft Light", then Filter->Other->High Pass--->15 px-->OK, and also Filter->Blur->Gaussian Blur--->1-4 px-->OK. (usually use 2.5)
Fourth, merge the second dup. page down to third dup. page
Fifth, save... and thats it (simplified form of what the senbonzakura site has)

IV. Tests and Practices
Compiled of some raws that already were released to the public.

Test or Practice 1 ---> clean and notice the differences (PRACTICE ONLY)
Test or Practice 2 ---> redraw pages (PROPERTY OF THE DEMON) (THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THE TEST)

Still adding more soon...

V. Main Resource

http://senbonzakura.kageyoshi.net/ --> VERY useful site and learned here the most

VI. Other Resources

Redrawing Tutorial
NOTE: I was just saying stuff that was on my mind at that time... hopefully this helped you
Well... I chose speed lines since its easier to see the difference,
also... incorporate THE WHOLE DOUBLE PAGE not just this certain section
this is just to give a visual of what your supposed to do

also, missed a few stuff...
when its the trial and error thing... try undoing everything back to the layers(ctrl+alt+z)
when its moving the pages... the shortcut for it "V" or move tool (cursor+directional arrows)


Full Cleaning Tutorial
NOTE:
PRE-WARNING - MY VOICE WILL BE OFF FROM WHATS SEEN..
Covers all you need to know
also forgot one thing, for our sake the image resolution is big so you need to resize it
CTRL+ALT+I, and then change the height and width to your preferences..

this video is going to be temporary...

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.


Topaz denoise must be used in RGB mode, it doesn't work in greyscale(keep that in mind)

Some settings I like/use:

Topaz:
overall strength 1
adjust shadow .4
adjust highlight -.34
adjust red -1
adjust blue -1
clean color .58
correct black level 0
recover detail .31
reduce blue .17
add grain 0

no debanding.

Ibitsu stuff (horrid raws)
Use both of these
Duplicate layer.
diffuse anisotropic
surface blur 15,25
set mode to overlay.

Save for web devices Alt + Ctrl + Shift + s
2 up
PNG-8
Adaptive
no dither
transparency checked
no transparency
not interlaced
64 colors
100
white as Matte
amount 100
web snap 37%

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