  • Psh, you guys don't know how easy you have it. Back when I started, you had to correct cover problems by hand! Or something curmudgeonly like that...

  • I used this little piece of software back in 1996ish. You had to use BMP file pics with it. Blah. Sick

    That's probably why I've never even bothered trying to submit a cover that I scanned myself, even though I own around 50 comics that still need covers submitted.

    Plus I can't figure out how to get a decent scan with our scanner. Anxious


    here's a little tip for you....

    I scan my covers at 300 dpi, then use paint.net (similar to photoshop but free) to resize the image and adjust the resolution downwards. I normally go down to 200 dpi.

    I don't know why, but this gets you a nice clean image...

  • I guess a good enough reason to go ahead and get a scanner..

    Oh and by the way, some early fanzines (and I did one myself for a couple issues in 1964) did covers that were handtraced (usually over a light bulb with glass over cover) onto mimeograph paper. Hmmm, wonder if that is in the Smithsonian now...
    The joy is in the journey, not just the destination.
