I could write some sort of guide + standards, but scanners/scanner sofware differs quite a lot so we need to straighten out a few ?'s first. For instance: Should the pics be printer-friendly or just readable on screen? And could anyone help out with some photoshop-work?GJ wrote:Guess I could scan them some way - a crash course would be appreciated though (rules about formats, resolution and stuff).
Yeah, pdfs + 300dpi would be ideal but that requires that the contributors know how to make them, or that someone can help out with that bit.GJ wrote:Agreed! (is file-size a problem?)khiijol wrote:i personally like multipaged pdfs as opposed to a loose collection of 25+ jpgs
Damn, that reminds of how some years ago, this Sthlm store had a whole bag full of old Metal zines from about 1983 and onwards. I was short on cash when they came in and by the time I had the money they were gone. They probably only cost a few €s each, but there were more than a hundred of them and I know I'll never see something like that offered again.Nicko McBuff wrote:I was lucky enough to browse my mate's German underground HM zines from the 80s. His killer mags full of US metal and the old German scene made me very envious!
About (c)s, I figure a footnote along the lines of "If you are the owner of this publication and want it removed, please contact.." etc. It's a legal gray area, but I'm willing to take a gamble that at least I won't get sued.GJ wrote:Are there any copyright issues - legal or moral - to deal with?
How about the dividing line between fanzine/magazine proper?
