Kat's guide to scanning by The-Yuri-Canon Kat's guide to scanning by The-Yuri-Canon
This is one of my guides that used to be on my old site, which recently was closed down. I've had a few people ask for me to explain how I go about my art works so I thought I might as well post them.

This one is simply about scanning. I decided to post this after coming across a conversation in the forum asking about scanning images. So felt it was best to start with the beginning.

This lesson was done back in 2004 on photoshop 6. I now use photoshop CS2 but I've found little difference in the programs, unlike when things changed between 5 and 6.

Well I hope this is of some help.

it takes you computer that long to scan at 600 dpi, that is slow, my computer only takes about 1 minute.

That was years ago. Not it takes no time at all. That machine was bought back in 97 and oddly enough still works to this day. I have no idea how it keeps running even after the monitor exploded. *shrugs*

LOL, would you believe when I got it that thing cost me $4000 and was the top of the line computer at that time? It was considered faster then any other at the time and the monitor was the best... I miss that monitor. Back then getting a scan finished in a couple of minutes vs a couple of hours was a god sent. Tells you just how old I am... back then it only had a 56K modem and there wasn't much of an online community even. Things sure have changed.

hell yeah it has. I just recently got up to speed with the digital world, my first computer was a windows 95 compaq I got for free (I only used it like 5 times), then I got a windows 2000 dell that I fried, then I used a windows 98 that I built myself, then I upgraded that to a windows xp, but I tried to pirate it and it did not work (registry expired, now I can't ues it), and at the current time, I am using a windows vista laptop that I got about 5 months ago.

Sounds like you have been having a lot of fun with computers. I tend to stay away from compaq or dell. Our newest machine is a Toshiba laptop and next we are going for a monster machine for my wife, she is a major video gamer and wants something that can keep up with Black and White 2. We have been staying away from Vista for the time being, even though we were supposed to get a copy for our laptop, but turned it down. Hopefully we'll get another machine soon, because right now I'm working on our former roommate's beast of a machine and I finally got it to be able to use a word program so I can get back to writing. All it was good for was surfing online and even then you had to be careful not to go to the wrong site or it was crash on you. The fun of it all.

Well, good luck with your new computer.

yeah, vista sucks ass, it is just xp with a new look. my laptop is a $440 acer, but I upgraded it past stock performance, so now it is hella fast. do you read newtype usa, oh wait, sorry, I forgot you are Canadian. well, anyway, their is some bull shit in the how to art section, it says you need 1 TB of hard drive space and 4 GB RAM, that is way to much, I am doing just fine with art and music both on only 80 GB hard drive and 1 GB RAM

I used to pick up Newtype, but from Japan. I only looked at a few of the USA editions and didn't like them much. Anyways, most of the artist I know state that 2 gig of ram is a god sent and just being able to have 100 gig harddive is a lot. I mean I worked with a small amount of ram and only a 4 gig hard drive for years. Mind you my art took up the entire computer rather quickly. The new DVD burners are very useful. When I created works for print they tended to be several gig in size to make sure the quality of the posters were up to standards. Our Toshiba only has 1 GB of ram and 80 gigs of hard drive space and it is pretty dame good. We still want to pick up a 300 GB external hard drive just in case there is a problem, but Kim wants a computer with 4 GB of ram and a large hard drive just for gaming purposes. One doesn't need that much for art work, sure the more is nicer, but only if you have that kind of money to blow on a machine.

Well jaa ne

Cool! It was quite useful, even though I don't use a scanner for my drawings. :D Good job!

Well if you don't have a scanner then check out the other tutorial I posted. The pentool might be able of some help to you. I've drawn entire images with just the pentool before.

Well glad you found this useful.
