B4 Manga paper template (PSD)

I would like everyone to be able to make manga, even if you don't have the supplies to buy paper, pens, and screentones.
To me, manga isn't something that only a select few can make. Anybody with an idea, a bit of skill, and a lot of time (seriously) can do it, and I want to see what artists the world over can come up with!

So, using various official manga paper from Japan as a reference, I created a digital version of manga paper!

☆ Click "Download" at the top right side of the page to download the file. It is a PSD document, compatible with any version of Adobe Photoshop, and any program that can use/handle Photoshop documents.
☆ This file is B4 size, 600 DPI. It is 15.8 MB, and some computers  may have a hard time with this large of a file. I'm sorry about that.
☆ Explanations for the various lines are written in purple in a separate layer.
☆ All of the lines and explanations are on separate layers, for easy removal before printing or when you feel like it!

☆ This is FREE TO USE! You can use it anywhere and everywhere, for free and without any credit.
☆ Of course you may sell your manga, no need to mention me! I only ask that you don't sell this file itself, or tell someone that you made it. Instead, direct people back here, because I plan to upload handmade screentones, too!
☆ I would like to see what kind of manga you make! Comment with links or send them to me another way, if you want! You don't have to, of course. I just want to see people make wonderful manga. ;)

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ I will be uploading screentones to go with this file soon, so keep a watch on my account! ^o^ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ 
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ HAPPY MANGA-MAKING!! ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

So I print this out with the blue outline help lines still on there, and just draw my manga over the blue lines that are there to help me? Is this because when I scan it back in after drawing it I can edit out the blue lines and just have my manga left over?

You need a program that can handle Photoshop files. Be warned that many programs can't handle those files! oAo
