Cleaners (acronym: CLs) are the true heroes behind every scanlation team. They do the levelling, redrawing, repatterning and all the hard procedures of publishing a chapter that require utmost patience, skill and accuracy. They transform raw scans into web-ready content with Photoshop. They level, Topaz, erase Japanese text and redraw parts overlaid with text.
- A cleaner must be able to follow guidelines and instructions.
- Must have Adobe Photoshop and Topaz Plugins installed.
- Being a cleaner requires treading the fine line between undertopazing and overtopazing, underlevelling and overlevelling. The goal is balance between each extreme.
- Even after Topazing, cleaners are required to clean hidden dust.
- We are only recruiting experienced cleaners at the moment.
