Is there a process to match scanners with editors?

Hi! I've used this site quite often over the last number of years and thought it would be worthwhile to become involved. I've given scanning a shot (PlayStation The Official Magazine, Issue 50, Oct. 2011, using a Scansnap ix500) and feel like it came out well. I successfully edited the poster scans together (using GIMP), but I think overall editing is going to be a bit of a hangup for me due to lack experience (and honestly, desire). Is there a process for having scans provided for further editing and uploading? Or are there more hands on deck for scanning than editing already? I've got some other magazines that are missing from the database that I would be more than willing to scan and provide, if this is something that makes sense to go forward with. Thanks in advance!

you can upload what you have and we can add it on the server for someone to edit.

Ok perfect, where should I upload it (I see the upload limit here is 512kb)? Also, is it better to upload an unedited .cbz, or the raw scans? I do have the .cbz on Google Drive, if that's preferable?

the RAW scan is preferred. cbz or cbr is fine.

Awesome, good to hear! Later I can dump the raw scans in a drive folder, moving forward is it best just do other scans into drive and post the link in the forums?

I see that upload was done, looks great, thanks for doing that!

 

I got around to doing a couple more scans today, Official Xbox Magazine Issue 85 and PlayStation The Official Magazine Issue 31, as suggested I've just uploaded the scans to drive this time rather than the cbz or cbr. If there are any suggestions to do anything different moving forward please let me know, thanks!
