Thanks for your interest in becoming a typesetter!
Q: What is a typesetter?
A: A typesetter is someone who transfers the proofread script onto the cleaned pages. A typesetter will arrange and style the text so that things look nice and are easy to read, while reflecting the format and style of the raws.
Q: How do I become a typesetter?
A: You must pass the typesetter test. Please download the following file and complete the test inside. PLEASE SAVE AS PSD as well as PNG. Then, please email it to email@example.com. Good luck!
Typesetter Test: Link 1 (Mega) or Link 2 (4shared)
Q: Do I need Photoshop?
Q: I finished reading the test instructions. But how do I know what is good or bad typesetting?
A: One way to see what we’re looking for in good typesetters is to check out some of the recent manga that we have scanlated.
You can find them on our online reader (at Batoto). 🙂
Another way is to read tutorials. Here are some that may help.
