Any manga cleaners?

Thu, 09/05/2013 - 20:12 -- BlueWinds

So... this isn't exactly the same thing, but I spend about 1/3 of my development time "cleaning" images. Cutting out text, changing backgrounds to #222 instead of white, and drawing polygons around girl's hair and eyes so I can use GIMP's Colorize tool on them.

I'm not interested in teaching, but it's basically the same skills used by manga cleaners, and I was wondering if anyone here has that skillset and would like to help out. :) If you're not already a supporter, I'd be happy to make you one.

If you're interested, contact me using the site form, or comment here.

why don't you post a folder of picture to be cleaned on your forum, i'm sure there will be some people to clean them, i could do it if i had time, but i don't get the part with drawing polygon, is it a gimp tools? i never used it when i cleaned manga <_<

It's also known as a lasso. Selecting an arbitrary shape, so I can apply filters (changing hair color) only within that area.

A thread on the forum is a great idea - I'll do that when I have some more stuff. For now though, I have lots of volunteers and have already handed out everything I had.

Thanks everyone!
