Lesson 9. Two-Color Print Projects > Adding a spot color

Adding a spot color

You can add a spot color to selected areas of an image in different ways with varying effects. For example, you can apply a spot color to part of a grayscale image so that the selection prints in the spot color rather than in the base ink. Because spot colors in Photoshop print on top of a fully composited image, you also may want to lighten or remove the base color in an image (in this case, black) when adding spot color to it.

In this part of the lesson, you’ll set up the saxophone to print as a spot color. Then you’ll mix the spot color and black using Curves.
