No.

Maybe expression "villain" here means like anti-hero or as in, "your villain" (I think I'm doing what's right, but that means I am against you), as in the sense of antagonist.

>>152787672
xなんてごめん isn't 'gomen' in the sense of 'sorry', but comes from it's meaning of 'to excuse from' - it's saying 'I don't want x (bad thing)' or 'Spare me x'. So she's saying that since she sees herself as a 'hero of justice' she doesn't want, and won't let them, act as if she's the bad guy. Hence the next line, that she's going to make them understand who's the boss, essentially.

Trying to clean this side text is becoming a huge pain because there's not enough space to clone the pattern. Should I just typeset the translation under it?

Is that from Harta December 2016? I'm about to scan that if you want better raws.

>>152791767
It's from a RAR someone posted in the last thread. Hinamatsuri. If you can give me better raws, that would be appreciated, since these ones are kinda grainy and compressed. TIFFs would be preferred, onegai.

>>152791395
When I have this I just select a part of the pattern, create a new photoshop pattern out of it, draw over the text with a normal brush, and then apply the pattern I just created to it.
>>
>>152792805
I tried that too. The problem is the text is so large relative to the pattern area, and the pattern is so irregular, that doing so inevitably creates a visually unacceptable banding effect.
>>
>>152793176
One thing you can do is since the text splits the background pattern in two, it doesn't really matter if the pattern on the left matches the pattern on the right.

You can just typeset it first, redraw what's to the right of the text with a sample from the right, and the same for the left.

Um, in case I haven't mentioned this, I have absolutely no artistic capacity in that arena whatsoever. When I doodled as a small child, they were usually *diagrams*, like road maps. If someone else thinks they can do it, that'd be great, but I congenitally cannot draw.

I can't draw for shit either but I get by as a redrawer. If you can cover enough of a thing up with text you're normally golden.

One thing I've noticed while comparing chink/gook scans to raws/English scans is that when they either can't redraw or can't be bothered, they stick a fake box around text that's boxless in the original. You can't possibly imagine my face when I realised I was being bamboozled by these awful people.
>>
>>152793775
English scanlators do that too.
It's been suggested in these threads before, particularly to the Baki scanlator that comes around recruiting.

It's not a skill thing. I just, for whatever reason, cannot draw. I don't know if it's an ASD thing or if it's a side effect of my poor fine motor control, but I cannot mentally form an image and put it down on a page with a series of strokes. Not even a bad image, none at all. I have most of my childhood doodles, and they're all either diagrammatic, or polygonal. I can't even copy an image looking at it, I have to physically trace it.

I've had the same experience with groups that you have, but it would definitely seem smarter to typeset first and redraw later.

>>152793872
It's how I've always worked. But I'm normally stuck doing both anyway. I've only worked with a couple of dedicated redrawers and one of them would tell me which ones he needed typeset before he'd redraw them, and the other I just gave typeset stuff to anyway. But I can imagine working with groups that don't do that, maybe try asking if they can typeset some of them first.

You don't have to be good at drawing to be able to redraw. For most redrawing, you can either use the clone tool, or just extend already existing lines and color between them.
For this image which I'm working on now, I used the pen tool to connect the gray curves in the hair, then covered the text with black in a layer underneath the gray lines.

For something like >>152791395, you probably want to cover the text with the background color, then make circles of the appropriate color on top of the existing circles that are partially covered by the text. If a couple places come out shitty, you can position the text so that those are covered, but try to make the whole thing look good.
>>
>>152794364
If I had a tablet I MIGHT be able to mechanically connect the lines, but I don't have nearly enough dexterity with a mouse to do what you just did.

With the pen tool, you just need to be able to place the end points correctly, then drag around the tangents. Photoshop lets you zoom in very far, so you should be able to drag something to the correct pixel.

>>
>>152802433
No, it's not from that. I think they're like Japanese ellipses. Their meaning should be obvious to an English speaker, but I guess they probably should be removed for consistency.
>>
>>152795208
So is that gyaru cooking thing twice a month or just once?
>>
>>152802323
Fine I guess, the thread is still pretty bad considering it's like 50% by the same person.

Anyway. What I wanted to discuss was scanning, DPI vs physical page size vs resolution.

Scanning a normal doujin page in standard 300 DPI will result in an image that's actually a good deal larger the page of the physical doujin itself.

So, wouldn't scanning in 300 DPI more or less the same as up scaling an image?

But then, say you have a 4k monitor, the page would look smaller than if you have a normal 1080 monitor.
So I really don't know. I feel like there is something I'm missing here.
>>
>>152802473
Ask the translator. They'll know better than you what to do with elements that might be semiotically important. Keeping an ellipsis/changing it to fit the text direction might be important for maintaining the 'flow' of panels, but mode features might make keeping it unnecessary, so whether to erase or not is a case-by-case thing.
>>
>>152802576

It sounds like you just don't understand what DPI is. Scanning in a high DPI is not upscaling unless you're doing something stupid like 3000DPI, which usually is when the scanner uses software to upscale it.
>>
>>152802576
I'm pretty sure if there's a physical page in the scanner, it won't make up information, it will display the information it directly gets from the actual page, so it wouldn't be upscaling, it would just be adding more detail to the scanned page.
>>
>>152802562
Nothing concrete has been said and it's a bit early to infer from releases, but it might have the same 'about 1.5 chapters a month' schedule as Mai Ball - there's no new chapter in the 27th Jan (print) Young Animal, but chapter 3 is scheduled for the 10th Feb issue.
>>
>>152802941
So what you're saying is we'll have to wait until the 17th of Feb for another chapter. Despair.png
>>
>>152802728
What DPI is, is fairly simple.
But if it's not up scaling, how is the image you see on your monitor larger than the page itself?

Normal doujin are printed on A4 size paper. Which is 8.3 × 11.7 inch.
Now, if you scan a doujin in 300 DPI the page width is ~2100px with a height of ~3000px.

My monitor is around 25 inches wide with a pixel width of 1920. Which means that zoomed into 100% of the page it will be displayed as 25 inches wide even though the physical page itself is only 8.3 inches wide.

Obviously not everyone has the same size monitor, but I really doubt anyone has an 8.3 inch monitor.
>>
>>152803034

I see what you're getting at, but your confusion stems from the fact that you're viewing the image on a large monitor. Your image viewer scales the image to match your monitor. If you actually viewed an image at 100% and it fits your screen, you have an image with low resolution/DPI.

Just scan at 600DPI and let the editor worry about it.
>>
>>152803404
>If you actually viewed an image at 100% and it fits your screen, you have an image with low resolution/DPI.
I'm really not sure what you're trying to say here.

Are you saying it's my image viewer that up scales the image and not the scanner?

Also, I'm usually the editor and translator of things I scan.
>>
>>152803525

All image viewers upscale/downscale depending on the image resolution and your monitor resolution. Check your settings for filters such as bicubic, etc.

Which is why upscaling a 1200-px page to 1600 or something won't improve the quality, because the data isn't there. If you start with a high-resolution scan, you can downscale without a noticeable loss of detail depending on paper quality, the scanner, the scaling method, etc. Screentone might get messed up though, so keep an eye on that.

Just scan something in 100dpi and see how that turns out.
>>
>>152803843
Okay, sorry, but you're not being very clear here.
It's obvious that down scaling an image will not effect its quality.

The question is how does an image get larger than its physical counterpart after scanning? That's what makes no sense.

Shouldn't the data be limited to what the physical size of the page is?
Isn't the page technically stretched when it's fit to a 25 inch monitor?
>>
>>152804044
If you scan it at 100 dpi and then view it on a 100 dpi monitor, it should be the same size.
>>
>>152804044
Because an image on a computer doesn't really have a physical size. It has a pixel dimension, but that's just an array of numbers. How much space each pixel takes up in a given rendering, whether on screen or in print, depends on the resolution of the device. Changing the zoom level is actually just changing the output resolution.
>>
>>152804044
Alright dude, you're having problem understanding some basic stuff here. It doesn't get larger or smaller because it's just a digitization of a physical object.

The digital copy has no measurements in physical terms. Scanning just lets you see more detail than what your eyes can normally see on it. It's no different from holding the physical object really close to your eyes.

Are you sure that's a her? That chests looks like a boy's.

>>152804044

There's an aspect ratio between image size and DPI. The simplest way I can think to describe it is that the scanner "looks closer" with more scanner diodes when you tell it to use a higher DPI, and gets an image with more detail.

Image scaling is tied to the resolution, not the physical size. That's an entire subject of its own that you'll have to read into, but it's a common question with movies (playing a 1080 movie in a 1440p monitor, for example).

God damn. Textless digital manuscript revolution when?
>>
>>152804674
So it is. We could just use that page then.
>>
>>152804790
I figure just leave the title page alone if it already has the English title on it. In this case though we can do what >>152804839 suggested.
>>
>>152804912

Not even that, I just want my nice pages without editor text on them.

Especially since artists rarely upload digital copies, and if they do, they're 1000px at best.
>>
>>152804409
Title is Shigan Kyoushuu by Midori Foo, by the way.
>>
>>152804960
I don't see any editor text on that spread, unless I'm misunderstanding what the word means. A little extraneous kanji is hardly what I would consider a defect, and it's probably unavoidable in most cases.
>>152804971
I got that from the last thread, but that didn't really bring up much information on it. Could you type the title in kanji so I can do a .jp search for it?

>So that's what determines the size rather than the actual pixels
You mean what determines the DPI? The physical size and the screen resolution. My monitor and phone are both 1920x1080, but my phone is a lot smaller, so it has much higher DPI. Viewing the same image on both with no zoom, the image will be physically smaller on the phone and larger on the monitor.

>>152809717
Either way, could you perhaps take a look at https://www.mediafire.com/folder/c1uojhuc7er7e/Hinamatsuri and type out a translation? Much appreciated.
>>
>>152809559
Try making the typesetting more similar to the original.
Like, make the text in the long bubble way smaller, and maybe also a different font if you can find something fitting.
And please make the font smaller in the two bottom panels. A bit of a white margin between text and bubble edges looks nicer, and the original is also pretty small.
>>
>>152809809

Doesn't Hinamatsuri already have a translator? Editor is the problem.

Are there any kind of redrawing "task" when you want to enter an scanlation group?

Like I just really want to mess with an image and see how I do.

Yes, many groups will expect you to take some sort of test or be able to provide examples of previous work.

If you just want practice, there's no shortage of raws to work from.

I guess here's as good a place to ask as any

Where would one go to have a thread about J->E/E->J translation? As in, tips, tricks, grievances, what are you doing, etc. etc.

Here? /jp/? /int/? /lit/?

Nothing against you guys but these threads are kinda more aimed at the cleaning/typesetting/redrawing crowd.
>>
>>152823067
If it's specifically about manga translation, /a/ should be fine. Would probably also be ok on /jp/ or /int/. /jp/ is a lot slower than /a/, which may or may not be something you like.

>>152789900

Can you people look into translating Sazan and the comet girl? It's a full color space adventure with an oldschool flavor and an obvious disregard for realism.
It's currently being serialized in a torch mag and all the chapters are there.
Still, I've downloaded most of them.
