    Looking for new scan editors!

    We're picking up a few new projects in the scanlating department, and so we're in need of some new editors!

    If you're interested, try to edit this page as a test. ^^
    For fonts, use these:
    Taichi & Zero = SF Toontime
    Man & Teacher = Manga Temple
    Download


    Please remember to level your pages correctly (whites are white and blacks are black)

    Spacing is important when placing the text.

    Please, please, please, spend the time to make your page look great! The object of our scanlating team is to have AMAZING releases, and we work to get rid of ever little tiny defect in our scans. The more effort you put into it, the more it will show, and the more likely you'll find yourself hired as a DATS Scanlator. :)

    Reply here with your submission as an attachment, and we'll see about getting you on the team!

    What program should it be used on? I think I only have paint for this kinda thing.

    No. Not Paint. Photoshop is what most of us use, but if you don't want to waste money, I suggest you download GIMP for free(http://www.gimp.org/).

    This was tricky because of the way GIMP wanted to do line spacing.
    I reconstructed Taichi's hair where the original text covered it.
    Here we are!

    Just change the levels of the image(dunno what that is in GIMP) to make the balcks and whites pure. If you don't know what that is(or where the leveling button is), do NOT colour by hand, you'll waste yourself a lot of time. I remember someone on our scan team was/is using GIMP, so they might know(if they look at this thread, don't remember who it was ^^;).
    If not, I'll look into it myself :]
    Otherwise, it looks awesome =D

    You need to centre your fonts (and use the right fonts those look pants if you need the fonts let me know)
    (make sure they are smooth n not sharp)

    So it's not good enough?? I really need the fonts (if that's necessary), but everytime i download your fonts, it's always corrupted.

    I'm interested.

    Well the second person is right, your files are corrupt because I had a go downlaoding them. Although I used my own fonts and to be honest this isn't the best I can do, I spent about 20mins on this, but it's ok I guess. Also whats with the SFX on the second one? I didn't see any on the translation?
    http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w47/lswanddils/editortest.jpg Take a look and get back to me please? I'm interested in all sorts of manga, but I cant do much if I'm not given the translation ;P Oh and also, I didn't like the look of leveling so I left it as it was :S Could you also upload the fonts again if possible?
