Cleaners Help
« on: March 18, 2014, 11:19:27 am »
Hey I plan to apply as a cleaner in the future, but with the experience I have now I feel uncomfortable to apply. When I feel ready I can't wait to join you guys but as of now I have a couple of question.

Q1. When a raw is released how fast are you needed to respond (like right away, that day, the next day)?
Q2. How fast should the job be done?
Q3. What was you average time as a cleaner (starting out and currently).

Hey. So I'm not a cleaner (I'll pester someone to answer those specific questions) but I can answer the first two:

1) It depends on what type of raw it is. If it's like Magi/Magus/Sinbad (soon to be Rain) then you need to be able to respond basically right away. If it's for a volume series (Mother Keeper, Halle, OWF, ect.) then usually it's based on how quickly we want to release it.
2) Which brings me to this. If it's a mag series (Magi/etc.) then it needs to be done ASAP. Usually within 24-48 hours (shit happens). If it's a volume series it depends on the release speed. Generally it's 2-3 weeks. Sometimes 4 (like with Halle) sometimes 1 (like with Rain).
3) N/A for me sorry.

I'll pester some other people to help answer for you.

The best thing to do is to grab some raws off the internet or attempt our cleaning test.

Want to see a image of a page that needs cleaning, and than the finished product. But people probably just save over the original when they finish. OH WELL!!!

So far I've been watching tutorials today, but tomorrow I'm going to attempt the test assigned to Eclaire (http://forums.sensescans.com/index.php?topic=2403.0). When I'm done I'd love to hear some feedback from you guys.

Normally the cleaner will give a PSD with a raw layer and the cleaned layer.
Feel free to try the test out, but considering how everyone's busy I can't say feedback will be.... timely....
But good luck!

I'd say stick to learning tankoubon cleaning. Magazine cleaning is usually beyond the skill level of beginners and is hard to learn from scratch.
