    Default How Separations Are Done

    I've been at this site for a few years now, and I still don't know how this is done. Or at least I have a vague idea. Scanning your color artwork in Photoshop makes the matter a little easier, am I right?

    actually, i've been wondering why (or why not i suppose) is it better or easier to do color separations in Photoshop vs. Illustrator.

    that was supposed to be in the form of a question. heh.

    I've never really seen a girl cry before, except on television.

    I'll have to look closer next time.

    funny that this thread pops up now...i just got done separating out my first gigposter that i will actually be screenprinting...I did mine in photoshop. 99.9 percent of the piece was done in illustrator, but i had to add some finishing touches in photoshop. so i just did the seps in PS. I think there's an option in illustrator to output color seps ( i know there is in freehand), but i dont know how it deals with overlapping of colors that butt up to each other...it took me forever. i am sure there's an easier way than how i did it....

    i do my color seps in photoshop. just separate the shit into layers. when done, i flatten each layer into a separate tif file, and bring those into indesign.

    then i rip a PDF file, email that to kinkos and voila. seps.

    i hear the pros use chanels, but i'm no pro.
