I have scoured the scanlation world and associated with all the misanthropic, eccentric, reclusive, egotistic, patronizing, obsessive, veteran, and experienced assholes in order to bring you the best of the best text guides that actually explain shit thoroughly and correctly.

Just another attempt at a modern manga scanlating resource collection. Guides I consider outdated and redundant will not be included. Updated at my discretion. Find video guides elsewhere. Useful for both newbies and veterans. There’s always something new to learn. Suggestions always welcome. Last updated Nov 2021. Feel free to ask any questions or give feedback at

This list of guides primarily concerns with using Photoshop to scanlate. If you are looking for advice on how to use Photoshop or its tools, I recommend googling what you don’t know. Your question has been asked and answered many times over already!
