Someone wanna typeset and clean A-bout!, it's a modern delinquent series? First 20 or so chapters are out but it was dropped. It's pretty cool and and it seems fairly easy to clean in general. There's already a translator willing to work on it. Not sure if all the raws are available but some frenchfags are working on it as well so raws gotta be somewhere.

I'll just post it here again. Can some group plese pick this up (pic related)? Or does anyone know any group that can pick this manga up? It's finished but the scanlations only cover less than a half. I know, it's big with 49 Volumes bit i think it's pretty sad to just let it die. Would be nice if anyone's interested.

Probably not a lot of value uploading those trial free versions. Everything else, though; if you start upping them I'll start downloading and archiving.

Unless I'm mistaken, the "trial free versions" are the freebies that EBJ gives out every week. They're usually a complete volume, although I think there are also some 1st-chapter-only, etc. versions in the folder as well. Hopefully they're all labeled.

Did you collect these all yourself? Don't answer that if you don't want to.
>Hopefully they're all labeled.
Doesn't matter all that much. When I archive I systematically rename everything so they are consistent with the rest of the content. Yet to find uploaded content that hasn't be mostly a mixed back of poor labelling, a big compressed folder with various different naming conventions for each volume or Chinese -actual Chinese, not Japanese- so it isn't a huge issue. Tend to double check what the file name implies the volumes are with what the actual volume contains. It takes a lot of time but makes it easier in the long run.
>>
>>134631309

I only gathered a small portion of them, mostly the Rakuten stuff, the rest are from someone else who is graciously doing the legwork. If it could be automated, that'd be great. The tachiyomi URLs are all the same. Ripping the samples of new releases might also be nice.

Does everyone use PS CS6? As much as I like GIMP, it's not good for what I want to do and I'm not shelling out bills for Photoshop.
>>
>>134636591
I used GIMP once. Everything was out of the place and took me 3x times to do what I did in PS and would never looked as good. Dunno why hipsters still use it.
>>
>>134637128
>Everything was out of the place
Not "out of place", but in a place you weren't used to. This is what happens when you use different software; you have to learn how to use it.
>Dunno why hipsters still use it.
Encouraging a monopoly is not only ethically wrong but it fucked everyone else over.

You're the perfect example of what corporations love.
>>
>>134637265
If you're pirating, it doesn't matter to GIMP's platform either way.
>>
>>134637420
Corporations rely on social media pushing their product more than individuals buying it. Good job furthering the meme that PS is the norm. Adobe make millions of dollars every year because of their unethical monopoly measures and it is thanks to people like you that they don't need to do any grass roots work.

Good work on the unpaid advertising.
>>
>>134637128
You can do most things you can do on PS in GIMP just as well, but the interfaces and stuff are so different it's really difficult to switch between the two.
>>
>>134637265
>Not "out of place", but in a place you weren't used to. This is what happens when you use different software; you have to learn how to use it.
Yes, "out of place". When most applications adopt a display scheme and working flow users identify themselves with they improve it, not change it. I used that layout way before I switched to PS. When there's this one piece of software that comes in and changes it just because, it's out of place. I've used more than 5 different image editors before and I only had this problem with GIMP. It's not intuitive, it's out of place.

>Encouraging a monopoly is not only ethically wrong but it fucked everyone else over.
Yeah, because everyone in this thread is paying for GIMP, PS and manga. You're the perfect example of what hipsters do because you're a dedicated brandfag that will shit on brands they don't like because they don't do it for free.
>>
>>134637549
>unpaid advertising
This isn't facebook, is there anyone in this thread that's actually paying for either software? Is there anyone who plans on paying for either? Cause even if there are I'd say the PS logo as the default for these thread's OPs is pushing it enough that that anon's comments don't make a difference.
>>
>>134637549
You're only embarrassing yourself now. No private user fucking pays for PS these days, you're absolutely delusional. There's a reason why Adobe had to change their plans and payments, no one fucking bought it. The only ones that pay Adobe are corporations, schools or artists. And even those get discounts or offers. Anyone advertising Adobe products in their blogs didn't pay for it either, they get it for free.

I hate translating sex scenes so much.
When I'm translating the prelude, or narration, or the epilogues, I have fun.
I like being able to read the stuff, and being able to actually get paid real world money just for the incredibly wearing task of masturbating while I write in a .txt file is exhilarating.

But the sex scenes.
Fuck them.
They moan in untranslatable sounds that nobody makes even in JAV, incomprehensible sound effects that have no 'standard' because every author likes to invent their own, distorted speech that's often impossible to translate properly, and generally an array of sounds that either sounds mind-numbingly repetitive in English or plainly weird.

I wish I got paid to do non-h, I hate sex scene dialogue so fucking much.
