1. if needed rotate page to be straight (chose some lines that you can
tell that should be straight normally)
2. there might be scans that have things in them that aren´t page,
then crop it out (won´t be in usual raws I have)
3. resize to 700px in width (Image - Image size, at bottom of window
have checked consttrain proportions, you can have all of those boxes
checked) with resolution at 72 pixels/inch
4. check if image is in grayscale for white-black images and RGB for
colored ones (on top menu Image - Mode)
5. duplicate layer (it´s usefull to have raws in one file with cleaned
pic) and from now on work on duplicate (and if you mess something, you
don´t need to start from scratch if you have multiple layers)
6. Crtl+L to level picture (move pointers of white and black just
right after curve will come down first time from previous pointer
7. check if white is white and black is black by zooming in. if you
see dots in plain black/white remove them by painting them with brush
to the color it should have
8. get brush put it into white(check before using if it´s really white
by looking down in color window #ffffff = white, 000000 = black) and
paint bubbles with it to remove text (or do it some other way)
9. if there´s text going through patterned background take clone tool
and try to clone missing parts from parts that are visible (zoom in!
you´ll get the right place easier)
10. save as psd file (if you´ll be typesetting a chapter then you´ll
have to save it into .png for grayscale pics and to .jpg for colored
ones; but still keep psd if there will be some changes needed until
it´s released)
11. typeset according to rules that you keep for the same type of text
same font style:
     bubbles (normally use font with upper case like Wild Words, Anime Ace, ...)
     when there´s yelling bold it
     thoughts (usually people chose from all case: Felt, Fennario,
Suplexmentary Comic NC, ...)
     text outside of bubbles(sometimes in, but obviously smaller and
with different font in raws) - can be anything
     sfx - I decided that we won´t be cleaning sfx (can be done for
easily cleaned ones, but better to do it on a separate layer for
chance that it won´t be translated) - but you still need for for case
it is translated and isn´t cleaned = notes (they are to be placed in
corners of panels or between panels place); for cleaned sfx you can
put fonts randomly what you like
     and TOP RULE: use text that is easily read (can be little
dismissed for book title)
     text in bubbles & thoughts(it can be placed in bubbles, boxes,
outside=freely) - keep it about the same size (like if you use 12px,
can use 14px for some) (can make it bigger for yelling)

typesetters, be sure to have text set as "smooth" (in PS at top menu while using type tool)
