what software are you using? if you're using word or google docs, you need to turn off your autocorrect for those first. It works perfectly for me, cos that's what I do. you don't even need to put the curly quotes in it, just use the flat one and replace all. --Pryun - Talk 17:36, 3 July 2012 (CDT)

Imma using microsoft words. How do you turn off the auto correct? --Castor212 19:02, 3 July 2012 (CDT)

uhh.. depends on the version... for my current version it's file>options>autocorrect>auto format as you type> straight quotes with curly quotes, but my previous version was something else. Just hunt down autocorrect on your menu and get rid of smart quotes. --Pryun - Talk 05:38, 4 July 2012 (CDT)

Cleaning Images

Photoshop. First open the image and create a Copy layer of the background. Name it "Layer 1". Then go to to the Image menubar item >> Adjustments >> Levels... (Do not choose Auto Levels). Make the adjustments to the black and white sliders found just below the graph, until the whites are white and the blacks are black. Make further adjustments until the overall pic is at optimal viewing form. Hit OK. If you like you can also adjust the brightness/contrast or color balance. Now comes the hard part. You see the japanese text? That has to be removed properly. Use the clone brush. Many times you'll have to zoom in alot and reduce the size of the clone brush and delicately "clean" the japanese text. Use the smudge and blur tools where necessary. Use the pen tool to redraw lines (better to do line redrawing on a new layer and then merge when completed). Finally, you must make a choice. If your images has a lot of dust and scratches then you must remove them by going to Filter >> Noise and then choose either Dust an d Scratches or Despeckle. After making the change compare before and after by undo and redo. Choose the better option even if you have to undo it (there are times when it's better not to remove the dust and scratches. That's all for cleaning. Zero2001 - Talk - 08:18, 29 October 2012 (CDT)

Important: To insert text, first search google for Blambot's Free fonts. You'll find Blambot's site, download all his free fonts and use a font manager like NexusFont to manage them. Anime Ace 2.0 is the default for speech but you can make your choice from Blambot's collection. use the text tool and type it in. That's all. Zero2001 - Talk - 08:18, 29 October 2012 (CDT)

There are manga cleaning tutorials on the web, search them out. It'll be tough work. Even I'm still an amateur at this. Plus cleaning color images are much harder than the grayscale images. Zero2001 - Talk - 08:20, 29 October 2012 (CDT)
