Recruiting: Editors ★

If you are interested please send an email to ' ObsessionScans@gmail.com '!

★ What is a Editor?
♦ A Editor is the same thing as a cleaner and a typesetter combined. So read what a cleaner is and what a typesetter is below.
♦ Cleaners have to make sure they do not over-level the scans, they do this by making sure they can still see the gray tones of the manga, and not just black and white. Cleaners also have to set each page into grayscale mode, and resize them to a 1200px height. Cleaners have to have a good amount of knowledge on cloning, and a little bit of redrawing experience. They also have to put 2 page spread pages together, or take them apart (depending on the page).
♦ A Typesetter is someone who takes the script from the translator and inserts the text into the cleaned scan.
They have to have a good range of fonts and the ability to see if it looks right when inserted on the scan.
★ Requirements of a Editor at Obsession Scans
In order to be a typesetter at OS (Obsession Scans)
You should have..:
♦ An application to clean and typeset.
♦ A basic understanding of cleaning and typesetting.
♦ The ability to level a scan without losing the gray tones.
♦ An application that offers cloning, and the ability to set a scan in grayscale mode (Black and white mode is the same thing), and typeset.
♦ You do not have to be experienced. As long as you have an application to clean and typeset with, it's fine. (Recommended applications are GIMP and Photoshop.)
♦ You also have to have an email which you frequently check, that's how we communicate around here. (Although you can send PM's, Email is preferred)

★ Fonts for Typesetting at Obsession Scans
For the color always leave it at black (#000000).
♦ For Normal text: Wild Words or Manga Temple
♦ For Flashback dialogue: Letteromatic
♦ For Thoughts in Bubbles: Wild Words or Manga Temple Italic
♦ For Thoughts not in Bubbles (Like in Boxes, Floating, etc.): Creative Block
♦ For Small Tiny Text: Augie
♦ For Handwritten Text: Angelina
♦ For SFX: Go to http://blambot.com/fonts_sfx.shtml and get any SFX you want. Just make it consistent (Ex. SFX's font being one thing, and on the next page the same SFX being another font..), and also make sure it's suitable for the situation!
