Just curious as to how you're picking these, SAGG. I can't see any particular patterns or anything. Are these just stories you found somewhere, or are you scanning them all yourself from your personal collection, or are they from an already-digital collection? What's your criteria for selection? Particular artists, writers, characters...? Or is it just a more-or-less "I liked this one" kind of thing?

Yes, yes, and yes.  :)  I'm scanning from a combination of old digests and digital old stories. There's no discernable pattern. Whatever fits my whims, I submit. I go crazy, man, crazy!  :idiot2:   :smitten:

Well, I done did it again.  :D  Downloaded some new stuff, this time in my second album. I think it's some nice stuff. Cough--Super Duck--cough....  :2funny:


P.S.: I also added Cheryl Blossom's first appearance. I thought I did before, but alas, I did not. My Bad...

Post by: SAGG on December 24, 2016, 08:23:34 am


Been bizzy with both albums a little, adding something here and there. More to come!  8)


P.S.: It's a little embarrassing, being since DR told me about the snipping tool and getter MUCH better resolution, but I'm going to upload my newest stuff via the old way until they're all gone. You see, I had just printed out a large contingent of things beforehand, and doggone it, I forgot which books and digital books they came from.  :-[  Since I have them all on paper, I might as well use them. Just giving you guys (especially DR) a heads up if you see a slightly inferior resolution. One thing I'm definitely going to do from now on is try to put the pages in stories from left to right instead of the other way, so they can be read easier. Afterwards it's going to be snipping!!  :smitten:

I'm feelin' it tonight, baby! Just saw the season premiere of Rick and Morty (a great April Fools joke by Adult Swim), and it put me in a good mood for more stuff, this in my second album! Enjoy!  8) 
Title: Re: Whew!
Post by: DeCarlo Rules on April 02, 2017, 02:06:25 pm
Interesting. I don't follow the connection, but if watching Rick & Morty makes you want to upload more Archie Comics stories, so be it!

I can't even imagine what a thread about Rick & Morty's "character ethics" would be like...

Got a nice stash uploaded today in my second album! Goldberg-drawn Action Archie and Chuck goodies that include a Riverdale blizzard and earthquake (though both not in the same story, and the earthquake isn't even the main plot--go figure), Melody encourages a boy stalker, a Jughead story, and more! Enjoy!  ;D
Title: Re: Whew!
Post by: SAGG on April 16, 2017, 11:47:41 pm
I laid it on really thick today in my second album. Got some pretty good stories (to me). Some include Moose, with one that will stand out, a Goldberg Action Archie one. Hint: Watch how the cop reacts. That's all I'm going to say about that.  :2funny:  Plus Reggie kisses Moose in another story!  :2funny:  Also Betty, Josie, and Jughead stories! Enjoy!

I decided to do it a little different with my newest batch of uploads: A plentiful plethora (our word for the day) of SIXTEEN digest covers, all in my second album! I hope there are no duplicates. If so, somebody please let me know. Enjoy!  :D
Title: Re: Whew!
Post by: SAGG on May 11, 2017, 08:43:06 pm
125 is a nice number, I think. Try 124 covers of digests and a surprise cover not associated with ACP. All of these are in my second album. Also, three stories added to my first album. Enjoy!  :D

Have to cut down my Archie collection from 250 to 90. I've been trying to scan some stories from old digests and the pages always look so yellow and God forbid that the binding causes the pages to crease. Been trying to clean them up in Photoshop but I oversaturate the colors too much...any tips on scanning would be appreciated!

Hello, and welcome. Heck, I just use my snipping tool (thanks again, DR), and then scan them. I really don't think too much about the yellowing of the page or such. To me, it's the aging effect that naturally occurs to old comics. I don't worry about it myself...

You can use image manipulation software to change brightness, contrast and color balances in a program like MS Office Picture Manager. If you don't have it in your version of MS Office, you can download it for free here (just follow the instructions on the page):
https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Where-is-Picture-Manager-58837c3e-34db-4904-95e8-4eca7b7c5730 (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Where-is-Picture-Manager-58837c3e-34db-4904-95e8-4eca7b7c5730)

You can further manipulate your scanned images using Paint, and even erase spots of dirt in the white areas.

One tip would be to always save a copy of the original scan before you start to play around with it. Then if you're not satisfied with the end results of your tinkering, you can always make another copy and try again, until you figure out a combination of adjustments that seem to work. Sometimes you need to adjust several things, brightness AND contrast AND color balance. Some people think it's all one thing or the other, and push it to an extreme range in one thing, but it's better to make smaller adjustments on several different things -- you just need to figure out the right combination.

Another tip would be to try and figure out what the absolute minimum resolution scan that would be acceptable to you is. Try scanning once that way, and once at a much higher resolution, and see if one or the other gets better results after manipulating a copy. Even if the scanned resolution is far too high to be practical, you can always reduce the resolution later, after you've manipulated it to your satisfaction.

If you try and straighten a crooked image, you lose resolution, so try to scan it straight in the first place. Another good reason for that is that if the panel borders and gutters are ruled absolutely straight, as they should be in most cases, you can drop a rectangular strip of white along the top, bottom and sides, and even in the gutters -- if there's not a lot of uncolored space inside the panels, that would take care of most of the page yellowing. Of course you still have to deal with word balloons.

You also can't get rid of wrinkles in the pages, so you need to flatten those out as much as possible when scanning, even if it means putting something on top of the book to hold the page flat.

A lot of the questions boil down to how much time do you want to spend manipulating each page? However, in the beginning you need to spend a lot of time on a few pages, just to figure out what sort of general adjustments get the best results. Once you do that, later pages will go faster.

I'm scanning as PNG files (~20-30 MB per page). I've been placing heavy coffeetable books over the comics when scanning to try to "iron out the wrinkles". Some are so badly water-damaged that probably only cutting the individual pages out would create a good-quality image (and I'm not willing to do that).

At this point I think I'm only going to edit the stories where the color on the page is consistent (1989 comics and later). It's gonna be way too much time and effort cleaning up the older stories, and I don't think I'll be satisfied with the results unless I go in and recolor those myself, which...no.

I can't quite recall now whether there was a way to save a particular combination of editing adjustments in Photoshop, so that you can repeat the same operations on a number of different files, maintaining the same consistency. That's the sort of thing that's helpful in applying changes to all of the pages in a single comic book scanned. I used to save a lot of pages from public domain Golden Age comic scans, so yellowing/browning of pages was often the big issue, as the original scanner just uploaded raw unedited scans of the comic.

Yep, Photoshop actions are basically preset edits. For me, though, the time-consuming part can't be done with actions (i.e. cleaning up a dirty page), so I wouldn't be saving too much time.

Photoshop keeps crashing my computer...I just want to be finished with this little "project"  :crazy2:

Just a suggestion, SAGG... you can take it or leave it. The albums are unusually large, which makes them harder to navigate if someone's looking for some particular type of story. Might I suggest you break those large albums up into smaller albums, sorted by whatever means seems to make the most sense to you? By characters, artists, decades, or whatever... and then name them accordingly. If all you did was just to break those 2 big albums down into smaller ones of around 250-300 pages it would be a lot easier to navigate, even if you didn't try to organize the stories in any way.

Right now what you've got is 2 monolithic ARCHIE UltraMEGA-Ginormous-palooza 1100-1200+ Page Comics Digests.

An interesting suggestion, DR. Maybe I'll slice the second album in half, or by quarters....  :coolsmiley:

Three stories added to my third album. Just hit the sorting direction in the lower right corner from A to Z to read them left to right. Enjoy!  :D

Cute little B&V DeCarlo-drawn story added to my third album! Be sure to use the directional sort in the lower right corner to read it from left to right (A-Z). Enjoy!

A Betty's Diary story added based on a recent thread of the origins of The Gang's names that seems to have been deleted. I thought it would have been fitting for that thread. Third album. Enjoy!  :D

HUGE slew of stories added to my third album! B & V, Miss Grundy, Ronica, an Archie one, and a Pat Kennedy one that has a several-part Josie and the Pussycats story! be sure to use the A-Z direction sort in the lower right corner! Enjoy!  :D

"Music For the Masses" is drawn by Rex Lindsay, not Pat Kennedy. In fact, while you may be able to find a few exceptions to this rule, JOSIE over the course of its history has really mainly been the product of only 4 pencilers... Dan DeCarlo and Stan Goldberg (from 1963-1982 in Josie's 1st series), then as a backup feature from the mid-1980s through most of the 1990s, pretty much Stan Goldberg by himself (although Al Bigley did a few, and DeCarlo drew some new stories for the two issues of JOSIE volume 2), and then during the heyday of the Pussycats being promoted to the lead feature in ARCHIE & FRIENDS in anticipation of the characters appearing in their own feature film, first Rex Lindsay and then Holly Golightly. When the movie came and went and failed to greatly increase the number of new JOSIE readers, it reverted to a backup feature in A&F once more, with Rex Lindsay and Stan Goldberg sharing the penciling duties between them for a little while, although eventually, Rex moved on so he could devote most of his time to JUGHEAD, and Stan finished out the run of the feature in A&F (which only lasted until Tania Del Rio briefly turned it into a manga, just before the 100th issue). In terms of page counts, the total number of pages of JOSIE stories contributed by pencilers other than those four (not counting their guest appearances in ARCHIE, of course) is pretty negligible. In fact, even Rex and Holly's number of pages don't add up to much when compared to Dan and Stan's.

My apologies, DR. Thank you for the correction.  :-[ I got the two mixed up. Why did I do that?  ??? :idiot2: :D

After a long period, I added something to my album, the original one, that is.  :) It's a throwback ad about winning a sweepstakes with the original Nintendo Entertainment System! Ah, the memories...  :smitten:


By the way, I got both the mini classics for both the NES and the SNES....
