Do you know if you can edit the tools so you can see the shape/size of what you are using? For example, let's say I'm using the eraser tool. In my PaintShop Pro, I have it set so that a thin circle appears to define the edges of my eraser. I haven't found this in Manga Studio yet, so it means a lot of CTRL + Z when I go in too far by accident. I hope this makes sense!

I understand what you mean. I know in photoshop, your brush will have the circle, and hitting caps lock will make it dissapear...
but as for manga studio, im afraid I do not know @ w@a

hmmm did you export the file or just post the JPG that it automatically saves in the folder? I always prefer to export the image so that I can see it's full view in photoshop and resize it there. its been a long time since I've done it but i think its just file>export and mess around with the size settings and file type~

what I'd do is export it rediculously large, and then shrink it down in photoshop. that usually looks best. if you take a small one and ty to make it large, no matter what program, it's gonna suck, unless its vector speific like Illustrator.

yep, take a look

go to file then Export, and then it will give you a menu that you can fiddle around with. if you can see in my crappy doodle example (lol) the pixels are set to like 4852x6862 or some rediculously HUGE number. that means it saves another copy of the image and its REALLY BIG! then I just open it in PS and shrink it down ^^

Do you know how to copy and paste on manga studio?
Reply
:iconxaiyu:
Xaiyu Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012
the same way in any program, ctrl+c and then ctrl+v o-o at least, it should be. but i think it also depends on what you're copy/pasting..

ahuh ^^ though on Mac computers it's usually Command+c/v but yeah, most programs use Ctrlc+ctrlV for copy paste. if it doesn't work, you m ay have to save whatever you're copying and then import it? not sure!

Is there any way to vary how dark the colors are when toning?
Reply
:iconxaiyu:
Xaiyu Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012
you'll just have to pick a dark tone ^^a; it'll depend on the size of your image and what size dot tone you use

Thanks for the help, but my tone folder is empty. Do I have to download the tones from their website?

It should have been installed with the software O_O it was nothing extra do buy or download at all... explore the installation CD and look around for something that mentions tone installing!!!

where can i find the eyedropper tool to pick up the same color?
Reply

Xaiyu Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012
colors don't work like that in manga studio ^^; if you want to use color, when you make a new layer, make it a color layer, and you chose what color it is in it's properties. you can not use multiple colors or textures on the same layer, it's impossible ^^; (as far as I've been able to figure out >.>!)

oh...because like every program that involves drawing has an eyedropper tool but this one and it stinks trying to figure out the same color over and over again on the same pic

well, I don't really recommend using this program for coloring. I think it's more meant for black and white and gray screen tones for comic-y styled art. It has the ability to use color, but I never use it. If you wanna color in it, it'd be most likely for flat colors and not painting. This program is more vector, it is definitely NOT rasterized like photoshop is. ^^;
What I've done before though, is used manga studio to do lineart and some shaded tones, and then y ou can export the image into a photoshop document, then open it in photoshop to color :D
I'd say Sai and Photoshop are for coloring ^^;
