  2. The magazine I edited last night was scanned on my Fujitsu. The original files sizes range from 7MB to 22MB, depending on the detail of each page. The versions I have at a height of 3240 pixels average about 2.5MB, with the lowest being 1.1MB and the largest being 5MB; most hover around 2-3MB. At 2200 pixels in height most pages are around 1.2MB in size.
  3. If it was Phillyman, if he doesn't do it right away, chance are he won't do it unless you keep asking . I don't remember you asking me, but I can definitely provide you with something to test with. Just let me know what you need. I always save at level 9 in Photoshop. I also save two sizes (2200px high and 3240px high), and release the 2200px version. I haven't found a case where 2200px is too small, but with screens getting denser and denser, it might be time to up the minimum size. 2200 was settled on because it was the closest even number to 1600px wide back when we based the release sizes on width rather than height. 1600px wide was a step up from the 1440px that came before it, and the 1280px wide that scans were originally released at way back when. So the sizes have increased over time, and it may be time to do so again.
  4. It's a unique problem that we haven't ever had in the past. I guess in a way it's a good problem to have, but at the same time it would be nice to have a way to avoid it. A lot of what I have done would already be out if there wasn't a break in January and a chunk of this month while I waited for Phillyman to sort out the torrents. He started, but it never got finished. Once the QNAP is up (hopefully this week) I'll be releasing things daily again, maybe even two at once if they are rescans. I want to get this stuff out the door. Part of the problem is wanting to release things consistently, so in order to not have to rush or have nothing ready, I like to have large batch of scans done and ready to go. That way if I don't feel like editing anything for a week (or can't), it won't be a problem because I have stuff to cover that time.
  5. I know, but I don't know how else to track it! I don't want to work on one issue at a time since it would take longer overall to get them done. Apart from marking everything I have as "Scanning" in the database and threads like this or the general thread for everybody, we don't have an easy way to know who is working on what.
  6. All-in-One computer was purchased, and arrived last month. A bunch of stuff was edited, and apart from scans that Melki and crimsonfox are editing, I exhausted stuff to edit, so I have gotten back to scanning.

  8. If a magazine is cut straight when it's put together at the printers, then using Photoshop to automate a lot of the colour correction, you can get away with not having to touch most of the pages in some scans. I have has scans where I only had to manually fix something on 15 pages or so out of 120. If I didn't have an ADF, I would not be trying to work through all the magazines I received. I would not even have accepted them.
