Scanning/editing something? List it here!

Recommended Posts

To avoid duplicating work (and needlessly potentially destroying a magazine), changing the status of several magazines in the database, and checking everyone's Work in Progress thread before starting something, if you are working on a scan or several scans (scanning, editing, or both), list it here. And check here to see if anyone has already started on that issue.

Hopefully this can help us avoid multiple people working on the same issues if we get more people participating. Plus this is a quick way to see who is working on what in one thread instead of having to check several.

Not that these are common, but I have a pile of SWATPro issues on the docket for scanning, as well as single issues of less common magazines.

I think this thread is better suited for when you are going to scan something that is quite common (Nintendo Power, EGM, GamePro), rather than the less common stuff (Game Player's, SWATPRo, Foul, etc)

sure anything you can spare im up for it.

I'm uploading the two Mega Play issues  to your folder on the QNAP. I'm also uploading the Photoshop action I use for that flatbed scanner. On my monitor the results look good, but feel free to tweak it to suit your liking.

It's set up so that once you have a page all nice and straight and cropped, you hit the F3 key, and it will save a cropped version, then it will do the colour corrections, resize the picture from 600 dpi to 300 dpi at a height of 3240 (full size), save a JPG copy of that in a folder called Full, then is sizes down to a height of 2200 and saves a JPG copy of that to a folder called 2200. Then it closes the image. I save two versions in case one day we decide to go with full size scans; that way we have a bunch ready to go.

When you're done you can release them, but leave the finished cbz files and all the images in your folder. I will download them and back them up as I normally do, syncing them between my QNAP and the Retromags one.

The uploading might take a while as each scan is a 600DPI TIF file at around 100MB each. The Mega Play issues each have 68 pages and the two above mentioned folders with the proper sized thank you pages in them. If you see all that for one issue that means it should all be uploaded.

What's stopping us, again?  I thought our bandwidth problems were in the past.

Not sure anymore, to be honest. Maybe it's that it's not really necessary at this time (or maybe it is). Some scans end up being double in file size when they are full size. Maybe people would not go for that.

I'm actually scanning several issues of GamePro that need an updated scan. If you're interested in helping with those feel free. Though I think you working on PC Gamer is time better spent, especially new issues :)

Even though this was my idea, I have not been good with actually updating it with my scans. I will update the list tonight of what I have already scanned and what will be upcoming as I have already prepped the next batch.
