It would be rad if people could post up a request for a tutorial to be created by someone more knowledgable and have it be done. There are a few things I know enough about to get away with but would like to learn more about and I know that there are tons of tut sites but I really like go medias tutorial style. Some things I want to know more about are:
Doing full color seps, working in depth with halftones, and distressing techniques. If anyone wants to either point me in the right direction for these or wants to get ambitious and do up a rad tut (gomedia) i would be much obliged.

    i do my halftones 3 different ways but one that killerwombat didnt mention is through converting your b/w image to bitmap. Make sure your image is in Grayscale, then go Image > Mode > Bitmap . Select your output resolution and method: Halftone Screen and select OK. From there play with frequency, angle and shape to get the desired effect. This method may give you more control over the end result. Here's an example of how you can control the look of the halftone.

    im with altair on halftone method. it gets a little annoying switching back and forth through color modes though.

    im still hoping someone will be kind enough to explain full color seps. i know jimmy touched on it in the past explaining the K is the 'Key' color and is either white or black. a link or simple walkthrough would be amazing.

    I agree, I opened a thread before asking about how to do color seps in photoshop for full color screen printing but was hoping jimmy would create a tut about it.

    but since im printing tees myself, i want to be able to someday make the jump into four color process and would need to know how to sep myself.

    It is called Photoshop.

    I promise, once I am less busy I will train you guys in the art of four color seps. It's relatively easy, but there's a lot of little things to explain.

    The bad news? You are going to have to switch through your color modes.

    You mean like going to greyscale and bitmap? I'm looking forward to this man. I really wanna learn it.
