Applying for the Typesetter position - OPEN

PLEASE APPLY ONLY IF YOU HAVE PRIOR EXPERIENCE. YOUR ENTHUSIASM IS APPRECIATED, BUT WE DO NOT HAVE TRAINING MANPOWER.

Guidelines:
  • Insert text into the following pages using the script provided. (House style is to present SFX in a style that mimics the format of the original JP.) (Here is a link for several typesetting fonts, should you need them. Keep in mind these are basic fonts only and I expect you to use a little creativity when dealing with sfx.)
  • Files must be in tff format with layers intact. (Do not merge!)
  • Send completed pages to Rebmastu either via here in a PM or through our discord channel.
  • You must be able to work with image editing programs, preferably Photoshop.
  • Recommended reading: AnonBlack's Typesetting Guide

Even if you fail this test the first time around, you are more than welcome to attempt it several times. You don't necessarily need to pass both image tests in order to be accepted onto the team, however, you must attempt both. Please keep in mind that I may provide a secondary test if multiple attempts are made.
Tip: Try layering the raw page over the clean in Photoshop and decreasing the opacity so you can properly place the text where it belongs in the bubbles. When you're done, just turn off the raw page's layer and voila! Instant typeset page.
