umm, yea, I finally found a client that doesn't know how to color seperate ... they want me to do it, and i have no idea how to, what's the best way to color seperate a full color image in to 6 colors or less? anyone?

    I hope it is in Photoshop because I would like to know to.

    it's in photoshop ... that'd be one of the reasons it's full color

    i imagine your best bet would be the input from one of the screen printers on here they all seem rather savvy at this kind of thing

    if its full color.

    it needs to be cmyk.

    flip to the channels window and delete the channels one by one. so each psd should only have ONE channel... you'll obviously have to go back in your history a few times.

    so you'll have 4 psds/tiffs whatever for each channel or in this case color.

    cyan.psd
    yellow.psd etc... you can name them whatever.

    that seems easy enough!

    I think I figured it out, I used index colors to seperate it to 6 colors, worked out alright.

    In Photoshop there's a separations option when you go to print.
