Question thingy

Postby Stinkywigfiddle on Sat Apr 06, 2002 5:29 pm

For Kasey/Maelstrom.
What kind of computer paintin, picture fixing thing do you use? What's the name of it? Do you know what I'm talking about?
I'm thinking of looking into purchasing one.
I've noticed that my comic looks better on paper than it does on the computer after I scan it. I've also noticed that your comic looks a lot better than mine.
I guess you're not back yet. I can wait for your return.

Stinky -- part of the pic issue might be the scanner you're using. Unless you're using high end equipment, it don't work so well. Also, maybe try upping the DPI? But yeah, like 90% of scanners are evil....

The Real secret is that the black parts of my comic are darker then when they were scanned. I darken the black areas and lighten the white giving it a really sharp contrast.
Your black areas look better on paper because thats how the black marker is supposed to work if i didn't use my photoshop program to adjust levels then it would look the same way.
So try using a photoshop program to adjust the contrasts and it should look better.
maybe~shrug~ ^^

Could be mostly my scanner, yeah. I've had it for over a year now. Does that make it old?
I'm not sure if I have photoshop.

Yes, D-dubs! You must learn Adobe PhotoShop!!! It is very expensive, but you should try to buy (or "borrow") a copy. A class is also a good idea- community ed. has some.
