Tutorial - Scanning by TaniDaReal Tutorial - Scanning by TaniDaReal
I already did this tutorial a while ago (but forgot to finish and upload it). ^^;

Here's a little overview about the basics how I scan my pictures. There are of course different ways how to scan a picture properly, but this way always worked out nicely for me. :)

Scanner: Canon CanoScan 4400F
Program: Adobe Photoshop CS3
Artwork: Traditional colored picture (markers, pencils)

Click "Download" in the menu to see the full size picture (I hope the font is still readable).

This tutorial is great! I never knew about that, no wonder my drawings always turned out so ugly after scanning. I never edit them.

You can use any scanner. :) It does not need to be that model / brand.
There are affordable (good) image editing programs like SAI, Art Rage, Open Canvas or GIMP. I personally use Adobe Photoshop, unfortunately it's one of the most expensive ones...

O.o Den Modus würd ich aber erst kurz vorm Drucken in Cmyk konvertieren, sonst gehen dir da aufgrund des kleineren Farbraums massig Tonwerte verloren, die du auch beim Rückkonvertieren in RGB nicht wiederherstellen kannst - die sind weg.
Aber ich mein, das ist mit Sicherheit deine Sache und ich will dir da nicht reinquatschen. Soll wirklich nur ne Anmerkung sein, bitte nicht böse auffassen =)

Some of my friends have problems with scanners, so now I know where to send them :wave:

Myself anyway has got some questions:
* You says a 600dpi should be good enough. Is there a resolution above what the scanning brings more problems than solutions?
* Deciding what areas should be white/black is (yet) quite easy. What about grays? I'm always not sure where to put gray pointer :confused: (especially, when a picture is full of colors)

thats what I ususally do, but I change lights and shades more than the color filters. I have got an average with opacity, they dont look bad after all X3
