  1. I was actually going to do this issue next. I recently have spent the last month and a half traveling and taking care of family issues. I'd be willing to edit when I have time to get back into scanning shortly.
  2. I did this to properly capture a shiny foil card page on a recent scan. I'm sure you can get some nice results. I used an LED desk light (around 6500K? Maybe, I'd have to check.) to get adequate lighting. There are plenty of panorama and stitching programs out there. Do I think a magazine in a sealed bag needs documenting? Probrably not. But it doesn't hurt right? For me a sealed bag means all the inserts will be scanned and it's a definitive copy, and the pages will be generally pristine requiring little editing barring printing issues. I have quite a few bagged issues of EGM to scan.
  3. In general Yes prices are going up. I've observed that for the last two years more or less that they are climbing a lot. Though deals can be found. Sometimes on lots, but I've seen good lots that I've been outbid on that went into the hundreds. Some of it is speculators putting stuff out at high prices and hoping someone will bite. I've found offers where I've offered sellers a deal when the listing just started and they accepted before I could get outbid. But ya scans seems to have only increased interest rather than decreased interest.
  4. Quite simply, car or cbz is just a renamed extension for a zipped or .rar folder. Images are easy to extract and copy. You can also screenshot to share. You can read the magazine without comic book reader software by changing the extension back to zip or extracting the rare and using a photo viewer program native to the OS. Really the big thing you sacrifice is PDF OCR to make the text searchable, which honestly probrably not that many people use.
  5. I've got two on preorder. Was going to cancel the Best Buy one when I got an Amazon preorder but maybe I won't now if supply seems short. But I think there will be plenty.
  6. Once again , your steps nearly mirror mine. And like you said I don't have content aware fill or straitened tool. But you can draw a line and rotate command and it will straitenen the line. Just not as straight forward as the newer command.
  7. The main thing is , and you may not have been here when they changed it. But it's constant height on a scan. Where used to be constant width. Due to consistent reader viewing. The width doesn't matter it seems your cropping doesn't vary. Whereas when I crop some pages will vary somewhat as I crop depending on page content. A ful page artwork I'm cropping as little as possible. A page with mono color borders or pattern I'm doing an easy crop and if the page is t cut straight I'll be cropping more so I don't have to fill in during editing.
  8. Ok, not all of them. Cause 4K HDR rocks. And better VR. But still. I've played my Wii U more the last 3 years.
  9. For the most part, the so called big boy games aren't very appealing to me. Tend to be graphical powerhouses with uninteresting repetitive gameplay, with hooks designed to make you spend money on XP and DLC. You can keep them.
  10. Sounds great! Fell free to ask questions. Can't wait to see how it comes out. Was thinking of doing a strategy guide myself.
  11. I have a lot of the rest of the Ultra Game Players in my scan pile, but , if anyone wants to scan them first I won't mind if you have them. I will eventually get to them, but want to do the EGM's I have first at least to the first 100 issues are done.
  12. Man upgrading invision is always such a pain. I've been part of whole communities who didn't survive and Invision upgrade gone wrong.
  13. I believe OGM includes that stuff as extra files is why and why it leads to confusion.
