What is a cleaner?

After we receive raw scans for a project and they have been properly labeled, a cleaner then takes control of the project. Their job is to clean. They remove non-English text, special effects, and dust. Dust comprises of artifacts left behind by compression, blemishes on the original, or even actual dust on the scanner. A cleaner uses level adjustment layers and other tools to remove the dust.

  • Time

    All our staff are volunteers. This is, basically, our hobby. However, as members of a team we make a commitment to each other that we will take our work seriously, and for that reason we ask that everyone applying for one of our roles does so with the intention of sticking around for a while. We also like to ask each person to think about producing at least two chapters a month.

  • Photoshop

    We use photoshop in all our work, so a PC or laptop able to run it is a must. Having photoshop also helps a great deal, but we do provide a free copy of the program here on our Resources page. You don’t need a graphics tablet, but one does help!

  • Experience

    You don’t need any! We will fully train you, as long as you’re committed to learning. However, some knowledge of photoshop or image editing is a bonus!
